    First I've seen of these mowers....pretty impressive engineering! I noticed that the top speed was 19 mph....do these come with airbags?

    If these mowers get any faster they will eliminate the need for a truck. Just hook the trailer to the main mower and hit the interstate to the next job! :waving: :laugh:

    No details on the Stryker yet. Dixie Chopper posted this on Facebook 4 hours ago:

    Said they'd have the full spec sheet out tomorrow. Do know it has a fold up platform so it can be operated as a walk-behind and to save trailer space.

    Dixie tried this concept once before. Back in 2005. It didn't work that time.

    Wow only 1 photo from Dixie Chopper on their website smh. Looks like it's a little different than the Run Behind: more compact front to back, operator platform will be suspended/hinged from machine without trailing caster wheels, Z controls and on the fenders there's place to put foot for shifting weight on hills.

    I'd only be interested in a 36" or 50" machine neither of which they will produce. Looks to be significantly slower than my 50" Dixie Chopper Classic: 54" Stryker 3.7 APH vs Classic 50" 4.6 APH. Probably due to the ZT3400.

    New Wright Stander I. Has the Aero Deck and made in a 36" Deck with a spring platform. Also front casters are no longer staggered.

    They'll go about 8 MPH. If they don't make a 36" than I don't have a use for them. I'd also like to see a little more ground speed, around 10 MPH would be nice.

    Prices starting at $9000 based on their 60 month, 3.99% financing with a $165 monthly payment. I don't want it.
