    I just went to their site, I hop I'm not the last person to finally learn about this. That sounds like a really awsome mower, especially with the blade tip speed it has. I'll probably never be able to have anything like that but its cool to window shop.:D What do you guys think of it?

    Thats the most I know of. I also seen the twin engine DC, it had 46 hp. And next I think is Bladerunner they have a 42 hp model. As far as I know thats it. I'm kinda amazed by the 50 hp though! That would be one mean mower.

    I spoke with a rep from Dixie Chopper at the New England Grows show in Boston and if im not mistaken i THINK he said the 50hp goes for $15-16K. I could be way off...
