I have used a Dixie RunBehind for five years now. I use it for small yards and as a trim mower on larger accounts. For me it leaves a nicer cut than my 60 in. Dixie. The 27 hp Generac engine seldom lacks for power with the 50 in. deck. It's easy to steer and does a good job for me. I have had no engine problems. The mounting for the stand on platform can be a problem if you get a rear tire in a hole. It will drag on the ground which can get you hung up. This machine weighs 1000 lbs so isn't that easy to push around. I usually keep a tow rope and another mower handy. For me this has happened around five times a year. I have 815 hrs. on my RunBehind. Late last fall I put two new hydraulic wheel motors on---both left puddles of oil on my garage floor within a weeks time from leaking seals. My Dixie mechanic said that this is not uncommon at 800 hrs. on the RunBehind.
