It is a rainy day today...so I went out to test drive a 72" dixie chopper with the 3 cylinder yanmar turbo diesel WOW!! I think he said it was 50HP...nice! HE put me out on a field which had grass up to your knees and that puppy was askin for more! Anybody want to loan me a few accounts with 50+ acres to mow? My first impression is it sounds sweeeet, not only does it sound sweet but it leaves a nice cut. This thing is a giant but it drives as smoooothe as silk. The hydros are VERY VERY touchy which got me bucking back and forth a few times (kinda like someone new to skid steer driving) it really made me look like an idiot a few times. Im not new to Z riders I just havent felt one as silky smoothe as this one. The price tag was steep at first until he told me it was a demo and he would knock off a few grand. MSRP $15,500....demo price $13,000 I wasent quite sure of production on this unit per hour? But I do know that it runs at 15mph (he said it will cut at that speed) but when I tested the cut at 15 mph not only did I need a donor for kidneys but it left some grass behind.
