    Dixie Choppers are the best out there I think. Everybody around here runs them. Theres only one company who uses exmark. I only might switch to lesco is cause if I land this big contract I'll be able to replace them every year, plus the cost of lesco you can't beat it. but I have been a Dixie chopper man since 2002 and plan to still be one. No one here runs the run-behind, It's like having a fully sized z mower I think. You might be better off just buying a walk behind like exmark or scag or lesco and then buy a dixie chopper z. Our dealer didn't want any run behinds but the rep made him at least have one he has a price on it right now 2006 for 2500. No one wants them.

    I don't think you could give me one of those things. Simple reasons being; they are WAY too big for a w/b, also they weigh in excess of 800 lbs. Most w/b's of that general size are in the 500 - 600 lb range I believe.

    if i may ask, what dealer has them for that price? $2500 right, if thats the case then $1000 off is still to much money.
