I brought a new Dixie Chopper LT2400D end of last summer. I realize that time is not money for me but after mowing three acres with a push mower for four years anything is better than that. My mower now has a whopping 39.6 hours and has broke four belt idler springs, blown sending unit, bad carburetor ground wire, blown spindle and now has broken rear drive belt and assembly. So. I have more hours push mowing than I do on my new mower since I got it. I have only once been able to mow twice without being down. Dealer still tries to charge me pickup and delivery which i think is absurb! At what point do you give up and what would you guys do if you where me. Besides look at another brand! Thanks!
