    This cracks me up.

    Is it for mowing woods? If a guy wants to hide from his customers I think he's going to need a different camo pattern. Hmmmm, what would we call it? Spring lush? Turf stripe?

    And I bet guys pay a premium for that paint job too! :hammerhead: :laugh:

    They've had that mower for a year or two now. Apparently it sells pretty well because they're still making it.

    Anything with Camo will sell in the South. Even the girls wear it (along with their pink John Deere shirts).

    It sure does! my trailer dealer sells dixies and I've been eye balling that camo version sense I walked in there a couple years back.. If I remember correctly the guy sold a couple of those last year..

    It amazes me that anyone would ever pay extra for that crap. If it will cut grass and is dependable then thats all that I care about. Why would anyone ever pay EXTRA for that, its going to cut grass the same and is going to have the same dependability as the "regular" dixie chopper. Dumb business move to buy that...in my opinion.

    What got me was the Echo chain saw my dealer has that's in camo. I can see it now, some guy working in the woods somewhere....sets it down, and forgets where he left it and can't see the damn thing. Brilliant!!!

    Exmark has the same thing. I think it is on their Quest models that they sell, they are also camo color.
