    Anyone have one? What is the cut like? Does it stripe well or not?

    Looking at a used one, 25 hp AC Kohler with about 100 hours on in... for right around $6000.00 .... good deal or not?

    Opinions PLEASE>>>>> Thanks in advance!!!!!! :clapping::clapping::drinkup:

    Good mower, I see some running around, I mowed with one while the guy demoed my BadBoy, my deal is you can get a Brand New Bad Boy with the 30hp Kohler Command 60" with 0 hours for $6995, and it is built waaaaay better than the Grizzly, while the Grizzly retails out around $9500! while it did cut good, it was rough riding compared to my lightnings, and the deck is very shallow. The guy that demoed my mower said that I was going to spoil him by letting him mow on mine! He liked mine waaay better, and is going to be trading in his mowers this season.

    I just retired a 60" Dixon after fifteen years of use. Deck and hydraulics are still good, engine is shot but that's mostly my fault. It was a solid mower, very few problems, and I put that deck through hell. I get a lot of limestone rock floaters on my farm where I mow, and would hit one every so often. Had to replace deck bearings twice, not bad under the circumstances.

    I was out shopping for a new engine for the Dixon, but when I was at the dealers, they showed me a Kubota 326 with a 26 horse diesel and 0% financing. You can guess the rest...
