    Here (hopefully) are some pictures of my new dixon mower. It is a 44 inch, with the twin cylinder 20 hp B&S engine. I do have the catcher and blower for it, which i use on all my lawns, but I didnt want to put it on just to take the picture... And yes, I do know this is a homeowner mower, but for the number of lawns i do, i feel it should work ok.

    Right now, the plan is to sell the older one. I will prolly park it by the street (chained up to the basketball goal, of course) with a for sale sign on it. I really dont know what it is worth, would like to get $1000 out of it.

    Anyway, I am very happy with the new mower. It cuts real nice, and the blower on the bagger is real nice in wet or overgrown conditions. It is just small enough to fit through all the gates on my yards to! I think I am one of very few people to get a loan for a lawnmower at 15...all my friends think I am nuts. I bought the older one new in 2002, too.

    Thanks,

    Where's the catchers man? we do nothing but bag grass here and you take pics with no catchers? lol!

    Ok, now you have me wanting to take some pics of a "real" mower and post them here. hahahaha. Unfortunately, mine is DIRTY and not as pretty as yours anymore...

    Torolandscaper: The engine on that is a 20hp briggs twin. That's really a load of power for a 44" deck...

    I'd say he's doing good. I'm rather pizzed as I NEVER had that nice of equipment at that age! Actually I had an Ariens YT-11 32" cut and a 21" snapper. But I guess I didn't have any mower payments either! lol

    zg- yea, the seat is comfy LOL...so much so that i have been mowing the lawn about every three days....

    paolaken- the older one is a 2002, that i bought new, in 6th grade...actually, i paid for about half of it...but whos counting LOL

    ToroLandscaper-Jason was right...20hp, 44in. (thanks for covering for me there, jason)

    Jason-the catchers have to come off to get through the little tiny gate, and to go into the pile of plywood with shake shingles i call a shed...And yes, it does sorta suck kto owe the bank $4000 at 15 for a lawnmower, but it does make for some pretty good bragging rights. the catcher will be on next time i post a picture, i promise:hammerhead: :hammerhead:

    BTW, thanks everyone for the compliments.
