    Just wondering if you guys could tell me what a 2010 Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle 2550 is worth?

    It has less than 200 hours, looks brand new and Command Series CV675-750 Kohler 25 hp.

    I am looking at trying to pick up a few yards this year and found this unit for $3200. Is that too much? Any advice pros or cons on this unit?

    I think the Silver Eagle is a high end residential unit or as they call it "Commercial"

    They have Residential > Commerical > Industrial.

    The industrial 50" last time I priced one last summer is around $8500 as a demo unit.

    I suspect this unit likely could cost about a grand less new.

    Why are they selling and how was it used? Sounds like a decent price to me.

    Website says Models starting at $6,799

    the Silver Eagle was originally designed as a residential mower. However it has proven to be an effective commercial machine.

    Sounds like a great deal with such low hours, I'd jump right on it and offer him a lower number and then meet him in the middle
