    I finished mowing yesterday and shut off my mower to pick up some trash. When I got back on the seat, I then cranked and attempted to engage the steering levers to return the mower to the garage. However, when I attempt to pull the levers to the center, the mower stops (similar to getting up...

    Might be a long shot but I’m looking for a radiator that will fit on a 2005 Dixie Chopper XXWD5000. This is for a Yanmar 3TNV84T engine. I’m located in Indiana but can travel a bit for a good deal if anybody has or knows where I can find one. It doesn’t have to be brand new but it does have to...

    Hey everyone looking for your opinions on a couple of used mowers I'm looking at. I currently run a Gravely ProStance 36" and I love the stand on mowers, but I'm looking to add a bigger mower to my fleet as I added a couple of large country properties to my route. I'd have ideally liked to get a...

    Hi all, This is about a Kohler Command CV20S on a 2003 Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle. I've run the mower for around 10 years and with routine service has been mostly trouble-free. I mow about 3 acres almost weekly using fresh non-ethanol gas. Until today. 30 minutes into it the engine suddenly...

    Recently changed the head gasket on my Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle, it has the Kohler Command 25 engine (CH 740). It started and ran perfectly after replacing until i noticed oil leaking from right side of oil pan, i assumed it was from the engine gaining full pressure after the head gasket...

    Hey guys, names Bryan and I’m new around here. I have an 07 Dixie chopper lt2300-50d and it has the Kohler CV23 75617 on it currently. I’ve been considering a couple things with this mower.

    Hi, I've got a 2003 Dixie Chopper, Silver Eagle with a Kohler CV20S motor (Ser. #3305206351, if that helps). Runs great, starts pretty reliably, I mow 3.5 acres with it.

    I recently picked up a DC X2001, and cannot figure out how to lower the blades. The owner's manual says to press the mower deck lift pedal down, rotate foot, and then push down on bottom of the pedal. I tried, but it didn't seem to do anything or maybe I did something incorrectly. Does...

    I run a Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle 50" When I mow, it blows grass out with a fury, and it ends up in my face and all over me. I do have the standard OCDC, which solves this problem. However, running that closed causes clumping and a trail of the clippings. So I figured a true mulching kit...
