Ok guys I need your help. I can get a Grasshopper 223/52 2005 for $6999 or I can get a Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle 24/50 2005 for $6299. I have tested both and here's what I found. GH - Great ride, good cut, operator friendly, nice looking machine, No Stripe. DC - Great ride, excellent cut, fast, touchy controls, good stripe Both dealers are 15 minutes away. Give me your Vote and help me spend my money wisely. Thanks!
