    I am a big fan of dixie chopper thats all I have. But, when i was puicking up my dixie couple of months ago my dealer was showing me, and I was not a big fan of it. Thought it was a little strange but then again I have not used it so it very well could be the next big thing.

    Here is pic from that site. There were many pics, but this is one the best ones that is close up. I believe it's a 50" cut with a 27hp engine.

    it looks much better 'in action' then it did when I first saw it this year. I demoed the new 7-iron walk behind JD this weekend at the county fair with a 52 inch deck...that is one perfect cut, I think I may be switching to that for walk behinds

    kinda does....what do you mean by laughing at "creative again"....do you think their machines don;t change enough and thus not as good? Or could it be they built their ZTR;s so good there is no reason to try and improve on perfection?

    Wow, I like my Dixie ZTR, but i don't think i want that thing on my trailer. :eek:

    Kinda looks like a silver eagle with the seat cut off and the controls moved back.

    But at-least it is a floating,hydro.............hey its got an ocdc, I'm sold!

    personally, i think its gonna flop................. :alien:
