Bought last years Classic model & love it. I mow 6 acres in less than half the time it use to take to bush hog it. It does like gas, but I guess that goes with the speed.

Welcome aboaed twinsett

Glad to see new member join lmf and a lot of times when you get a machine that goes faster it uses more gas it usally takes a bigger engine to go the faster speed and you cut a 54 inch path to.:smile:

First of all I want to say Thank You to the forum administrators for adding the Dixie Choppers to this forum..Way to go!!!!!:cloud9:

Ok Guys, Let's show everybody what we are doing with our "Chopper's". I have a "High Performance" model with a 60" cut. I have modified a 26 gallon atv sprayer tank to fit my chopper and will post photo's soon. This sprayer is a great investment and I use it to spray for the nasty bahia weed on my property...What a thrill to see thay bahia go away. I say go away because it does return. I tell my friends that you cannot eliminate it but you can control it and the sprayer does it very well.I also purchased a brand name yard vac and its works quite well. I had to make a special attachment in order to connect the exhaust tube. If you use the idea that the vac company shows you need to remove the Operator Controlled Discharge (OCD). I did not have to remove mine. Pic's later if anyone interested.
I have towed utility trailers around on my property so the tow capacity is pretty good. I have a 34 foot "ex" camper frame that I can pull with it.
My next addition is a Convertable top to use here in the summer sun. I intend to make it myself and also will post pictures when it's done.
This past summer I bit the bullet and bought the springer front wheel forks and they seem to be doing OK, but nothing to brag about.
I am a member of a radio controlled airplane club and cut the grass there with my own mower. The club owns a small mower and it takes them about four hours to mow the field, I do it in an hour and 15 minutes.

There are a few key words that when used in thread titles can block or stop them....
Depending on what your title was .... that may be what happened..
Try again, with a bit different title... :smile:KennyV

I love my silver eagle 44'' cut with 26 hp generac very powerful very impressed with its performance! So powerful the only problems i've ever had is the nuts and bolts for the drive pumps keep vibrating loose will in turn cause tire and gas tank damage if u don't pay attention but i am modifiying this problem with a simple fix putting locktite on the bolts with lock nuts instead of standard nuts! will let everyone know how it works!! Oh and another piece of advice to new owners, whenever your first oil change is due replace with the same as the factory Lucas 15w40 , the standard small engine sae 30 causes the engine to run hotter and work harder i've noticed in mine! since i've run this Lucas 15w40 in my 93 suburban and replaced back in my machine!! Love my chopper!!--jason:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

I have an 19 year old x2000 60' cut that I Bought last year. It is on its third Kohler engine and the deck has been replaced. I worked for a landscaper that purchased the mower new. I use to use it daily for 3years , then I got into a diferent line of work. Last year I heard it was for sale so I had to have it. Now when I mow my lawn its like having a long lost friend back. How many other makers of mowers can have that longevity?

Bought a 27/50 dixie chopper last year. So far have been very happy with the mower. I cut about 4 acres and it has cut my time pretty much in half. Take care.

Thanks; I feel very welcome.

I'm just looking for some insight here. This year we bought a demo 2010 Silver Eagle and love it.

However, at about 50 hours the LED began blinking between the hours of use and "Change Oil".... which is confusing because we bought it with about 20 hours on it, and they did the whole oil/filter change before delivery.

Of course it's a holiday week, so our dealer's not at his phone (which makes perfect sense to me). However, this could be one of three things:

1) an annoying and poorly-timed reminder to do an oil change that shouldn't be necessary for another 50 hours of use,
2) a bad pressure sensor, or
3) a REAL issue that's gonna take some in-shop work.

i can't be taking chances with this thing, and don't feel like changing oil and filter until 1) i have enough oil, and 2) i know that's the solution.

has anyone out there had issues with this?

Silver EAGLE 2760HP. i think it's a Genelac engine.

Thanks!

My bet is it is a timed reminder light. Not 100% sure as I've never seen yr model, but I've ran a few mowers that do that. Best bet is look in the manual if you don't have it I'd try looking for online manual.

It comes on every 50 hours regardless. It should stop blinking by 52 hours, though.

Just found this forum today, though I've owned and commercially operated a Classic XW2002 for 13-15 years. Posted a problem on here earlier this evening; doesn't even show up yet. Maybe I'm just not familiar with the site enough yet. I've noticed, however, that the most recent post is a year old, so I'm wondering just how active it is
