Hoping someone has some insight. I ordered a Dixie Chopper X2001-50 (my first experience with Dixie Chopper) in mid November from my local dealer after extensive research of models near $6000. I know it's the slow time of the year for mower sales (at least here in WV), but my dealer originally advised that I would receive the unit in about a week-and-a-half. Now the story has changed and they stated sometime after the new year and they avoided my calls several times before telling me this today. I tried to contact Dixie Chopper via e-mail several times previous to my purchase in reference to questions my dealer could not seem to answer about the product and they never responded. Should have known better then. So I sent them another e-mail to determine if they were behind in production or what the delay was about and have not received a response at all again. Is this a typical response for Dixie Chopper with a customer and is there always a delay for an ordered model? I sure would have liked to use the snowplow on this unit today during this snowstorm.
