    fast, reliable, and more than powerful. but from what i'm told the cut is so-so, not bad, but not great. other than that i've heard nothing but good things about them. i would not think twice about buying a propane powered model. which model are you thinking of.

    So in other words you can't comment cause you have never owned one, right? You don't have to post in every thread.

    i HAVE A 60" DIXIE CHOPPER. It is built like a tank. cut is very good unlike other post said. I would recommend getting a strip kit with it because it doesn't stripe that great without one. My next mower is going to be either a scag or dixie. IMO these are the only ones that overbuilt and really last a long time if you do routine maintenance (grease fittings, lube, etc.):sleeping:

    I've seen many ads about them, but I've never used on and No ONE in my area has one. Everyone in my area has a Scag or an Exmark.

    What model are you looking at? There are many, and thats if your looking new. If your looking at used, there are MANY more. Some to stay away from.

    As a previous owner, I'd be happy to help you.
