    I am partial to my Choppers for flat open production mowing, especially if the turf is long. They leave a nice clean cut especially with doubles.

    Prefer my eXmarks for mulching the smaller landscaped props. & on hills.

    I would hope that only thoes who have used both would vote on this.
     
  5. eXmarks, Toros, Walkers, and now Dixie Choppers, which is it?

    You are so full of cha cha it's unreal.

    I prefer Exmarks over DC and I "have" both.

    Dixies will cut supper tall grass better than the Exmarks, but you have to double cut them anyways so the eXmarks still come out on top. Exmark disperses clippings better than any mower I have ever used.

    How about if I demoed a Dixie and own an Exmark??? Does my opinion count LeoS818??? I'm with LGF, I have yet to find a mower that disperses clippings as well as an Exmark.

    I bought my first Chopper on a bet. Bet was I wouldn't buy that "ugly" mower over a new eXmark.

    Haven't been dissapointed. Bought another the following year. Great mowers for our large flat com. accounts.

    That chopper may seem ugly to you but the reality of this situation is this machine is designed to cut grass,period!!...When I leave my accounts and look back over my shoulder I'm seeing what the customer and their neighbors will see until I return, A lawn that is cut clean and has a nice stripe...unless you were there when I was cutting how would you know my machine was ugly? How many on here leave their mowers on the job so eveyone can see how good the equipment looks??? Mine is at the next account making $$$$$$$
     
  10. Lets see some pics with you sitting on it.

    So far we have seen a 48" Exmark HP WB, a I would guess 36" Toro wb in a messy garage, a MM8000, and a trailer. Now you have to account for more Exmarks, 2 Dixie Choppers, a few Walker GHS's and 3-Isuzu SPR spray rigs.

    Did I miss anything?
