    Has anyone used a Dixie Chopper before?
    How do they compare with other brands?
    Any info would be a help.*trucewhiteflag*

    I demoed one and liked it's speed in moving through some very high and wet grass. But most of the areas I mow are fairly rough and uneven with some very challenging slopes. I have a couple of friends who run the DC's and they really like them when they are not in the shop. I suppose it depends on dealer support. It takes them way too long to get needed parts in. I can't afford that kind of down time.

    I've been using Dixie Choppers since 1993 and have had few problems. My dealer can usually get parts shipped overnight. I've never been down more than two or three days.

    Last July my electric radiator fan went bad on a Saturday morning. I hauled my mower to the dealer before they closed at noon. They gave my a new DC with one hour on the hour meter to use and had a new fan assembly on mine by 9am on Monday. A good dealer is worth a lot.

    I've only put around 100 hours on my 50" high performance this summer, but no problems to report so far. Great cut, great speed, and a decent ride.

    I have just over 400 hours on mine since I bought it new last Sept. I have not had a problem one with my mower yet. I have the classic wish I would have gotten the step up, but it has been a good mower.:weightlifter:
