    Yeah thinkin about this 2005 model dixon walkabout 15hp kohler eng for sale in my area...It was just used for just the owners residential property and is in really good shape...problem is Im not sure about the dixon name and brand. I have a 48 bobcat wb/belt now and its great but don't have a lot of cash to layout on a new 36 wb that I need for my customers that have small gates etc....

    The price on the dixon is $1500. Im also lookin at a 2002 toro belt/tbar pro line its a little more used but thats $1400 and I think it was used more for business.

    I've given up on the bobcats...everyone wants over 2000 for used.

    Any input on the Dixon walkabout would be great, thanks.

    the resale on the dixon is next to nothing if you purchase you better keep it cause you wont get nothing for it when you try and sell.

    Since its 15 minutes away show up and test it out. If is a solid machine that looks well cared for....pull $1350 out of your pocket and say I know you want more but I can offer you this right now for it. I think that would be a decent buy for that price.
