Dixie Chopper

I bought a brand new 60" Dixie Chopper a few weeks ago and thought I was getting a deal when I saw the price.
I hated it from the first time I tried using it.
It's impossible to drive in a straight line, way to slow, poor cut, cup holders to small, gas hog, loud, to light in the front end, very poor traction, even at slow speeds this has a mind of it's own and wanders all over the place.
(Keep in mind this is my 7th Z turn and 4th brand I've owned so I do now how it should handle)
The day after I bought it someone asked me you do know there going out of business, right.
Sure enough Textron the company that owns them is shutting it down because of the competition.
I took it back to the dealer when it only had 7 hours on it and told him all my concerns and told him I wanted to trade it for new 60" Ferris that would cost me almost $2000.00 more, and he refused.
This a dealership that I spend about $10,000 a year at.
I lucked out and found someone with a brand new 54" Kubota with only 40 hours on it that was looking for a bigger mower so we traded even.
It's far faster, two cup holders for some reason, head lights, floating seat, and cuts perfect even at full speed in 6" tall grass.

Glad it worked out in the end for you.....

Last year, I bought a new Exmark Radius 54". I'd buy another one although there are some basic things I would like to see improved.
