After 12 + years of only Dixie Chopper ZTR's I have put two demo Exmarks to work for two weeks. Thanks to a Exmark rep. One crew this week and one crew next week. Basically it is a 60" Dixie with a 28hp Kohler against a 60" ultra cut deck 28 Kawi Exmark. Both 2007 models. One crew will cut homes, mostly 15K-40k. The other will be cutting large commercial sites where the mower will run 7+ hours everyday. Basically my Dixie dealer sold out to a bigger dealer and the service went south big time. For me dealer support is a big part of my decision. We will see.
