I did some research and I have a Exmark 52, have been looking at the Snapper 61 with the 27hp. The other day I went to the Dixie Chopper dealer and I really like how they look and feel. In my area they are cheeper then anything else. My question is does anyone like the Dixie Chopper and how they cut. I am really happy with my Exmark and performance and would like to stick with them but might jump ship.
