    I love mine I bought a new one last summer 27hp generac 60inch cut I use it on my acre plus propertys' the fit and finish could be better but it's the best on bahia and like i said my big acounts and i have a 06 46inch exmark hp so I'm not bias . I mow one who has an acre of St.Aug and it cuts great but you see and feel the lack of quality compared to the exmark but still good for it's purpose

    Agree on the exmark. Mine serves me well. Have had it for 5 years with no issues, of course PM the units is a must.
    I am impressed with dixie's warranty and it seem to be more beefy.
    I only use equipment that use Kohler engines.
    Here up north its just plain rye or blue fescue.
    I am also a striper proponent. Do you use this method on your equipment?
    Thanks for the input.
