All right just when I thought I knew exactely what I wanted i stumpeled into more desisions. I decided to get a Dixie Chopper silver eagle with a 50 " deck. Heres my problem or choices. Dealer 1, 04(new) silver eagle with 20 hp kohler, 2 yr warrenty Dealer 2, 05 silver eagle with 24/27 hp generac, 3 yr warrenty (I was told the 24 and the 27 are the exact same engine only labled different for consumer intrest.) Also, the 24/27 has a dual stage high performance air filter system Dealer 2 is only 600.00 higher than 1. My question is this ....for 600. more which one would you get, I'm really leaning twords the 05.
