    I never hear anything on Dixon mowers, how do they compare with the other mowers like DC, Marks, Toros, etc. Thanks Terp

    It's like this. Have you ever seen those tool sets like you buy from the trade shows that are like 110 pieces for 19.95? Well, you compare those to Snap-ons, and you have these mowers compared to ExMark.

    The only Dixons I know of are used by homeowners and they like them. Never seen one used commercially. Personally I wouldn't have one. I'll stick with my eXmark.

    My buddy mows his yard with a dixon and he'll admit it is faster than a lawn tractor, but he says he hates it. I just think he is jealous of my nice new and shiny toro z master:laugh: LOL Marc

    My neighbor mows commercially and uses a Dixon. He loves them. He tried to get me to get one, but I went with Exmark. I do not like the way the deck is made on the Dixons (they are too thin).

    Runner, the only thing wrong with your scenario is the price. Those Dixons cost as much, if not more than Exmarks.

    I think one of the big differences why you see home owners use the dixon is because you are able to get a small deck. For a home owner with a small yard, they can get a 30" wide deck that can fit in through fence gates and is a zero turn. The exmarks, scags, tors, ect. are larger machines and cannot fit through fence gates.

    IMO

    Dixon = home owner.

    I have run one and it just feels cheesy and thin. But then the price is high.
