    We thought so and bought it on Saturday since our accountant said "get rid of some money if you don't want to pay a ton of taxes"...
    2005 Dixie Chopper LT Silver Eagle, 50" deck, 27 HP Generac motor (they ran out of 24 HP motors in the fall), gel seat and all, $6,000.00. We now have the option of buying another 60" with 27HP motor (the exact mower we've had for 2 years) for $7,299 if we want it prior to year end. That would be our 4th zero turn (have 2 walkbehinds already)...so what do you guys think, good pricing?

    Is that 27/60 for $7300 a Silver Eagle or a Coatesville Classic?

    That was a pretty good deal you got on that 50" silver eagle.

    Damn I wish I got those prices around here.

    A Dixie like that would easily go for $9,500-10,000 in my area.

    I got a 19hp 44'' for $7400 in march :cry:

    Get a flat-lander or above if you want it to last you a couple season. Spend the extra cash and get the machine that you want. They offer a no payment plan for six months and just pay the machine off in six months.

    I dont understand what is so good about dixie choppers. Little bit faster ground speed but you cant cut at 15 mph anyway...I forget but which versions are commercial and which are homeowner machines?

    A flat-lander is the entry-level for the commercial people. A silver eagle was designed for a home owner with and acra or two that would be mowed once a week. it was never maid to cut day in day out.

    I'm not saying they can't be used commercialy, Thats just what my dealer told me When i bought mine. Nothing wrong with an silver eagle, I just wouldn't take mine out on somethings I go though everyday.
