    This is in reference to the last dixie chopper post. I own a flatlander and it seems like it boggs down on hills and high grass compared to the standard model. I understand that the wheel motors are smaller and was wondering if you could make engine pully to the pump smaller to give it a higher ratio to be able to get a little more power out of it. Thanks

    You can put the standard wheel motors on a Flatlander and make it a regular Chopper. Maybe you can trade your Flatlander wheel motors in on the standard wheel motors. It`s either this or get a bigger Horse Power motor. I guess this is why they call them Flatlanders, not made for hills. My dealer doesn`t even stock them and he said he has only sold one Flatlander.
