    I tested the very same thing....The Dixie was faster, cut finer, had a bigger motor, rode the same (Independent suspesion is a joke...it takes like 300 lb to move one of those springs)...they rode the same to be honest. the ferris might be a little better on hills

    Get the dixie chopper. It has more power and is just a better mower.
