I was in one of my local Red Max dealers the other day. They carry Dixon mowers. I got a chance to look at their commercial ZTR the Grizzly up close. I was surprised by what I saw. From what I could see of the mower from the showroom it appeared to be a well built and designed mower approaching the level of other commercial ZTR manufactures. The reason Im surprised is because I never associated Dixon with commercial quality ZTR. Im not knocking them, it was just my bias I guess you would call it. How it performs in the real world I have no idea, but it had the majority of signs of quality I look for when I look at a commercial piece of equipment. Two things that stuck me out right that I was not sure about. First I did not like the gas gauge. I have a similar one on my old Cub and they get destroyed by exposure to the sun. The second and biggest iffy thing for me was Im not sure about the deck design, and that is one of the biggest factors when it comes to buying a mower. It looked too shallow to me. But on the whole I left impressed by what I saw.
