    Dixie Chopper LT2400-50D

    50" Cut - 24 horsepower Guardian motor.

    I got it home and put the deck down low to scalp my Bermuda grass lawn, This thing has some serious power.

    I wanted to get the purchase on the books for 2004.

    Guess how much it was.

    I also looked at a used Yazoo/keys - kinda junky

    and I looked at a Scag turf tiger. The Scag and Yazoo was a 61" cut but the price was kind of high for used. The pump on the Yazoo was small.

    I'll reveal the price after a few more guesses.

    Get my money ready All Degree!

    $25 plus postage and it better not be an OU hat or shirt. A sweatshirt I would like though preferably with a hood. Champion or Russell please. :)

    Not bad. It's a Generac engine right? If so keep us posted on the performance.
    I'm considering a mower with a 33hp Generac for spring. Almost went ahead and bought it last month.
