    Once you show her the ropes, she should have no probs with the Chopper. If she does, good luck catching her, cause if she is on a chopper, she is gonna be movin'. Just tell her, if she gets into trouble, just let go of the handles, and it will stop.

  3. Best decision you will make in caring for your lawn! the choppers are the fastest mowers out there. the dixie will give you many hours of use if you take care of it. my 2 biggest suggestion to you is to spend the little bit extra and get the kawi or honda (don't know if your looking for a new or used). either one of those are much better than the kohler or generacs the other suggestion is that you go to a metal shop and ask them to reinforce the tree side of the deck. didn't do it on the first one we bought and they can get pretty bent up. we've done it on every one after that and it makes a great difference.

    You might also want to take a look at a bladerunner mower they to are extremly fast and built like a tank. Anotherthing to consider is the bladerunner hill ability, it is OUTSTANDING! A lot of the Dixie chopper dealers in missouri are also taking on bladerunner mowers to sell at there dealerships.
