Dixie Chopper Magnum 2250 Mower Review

by Mike
(Bismarck,ND)

My mower is a 2012 with very low hours. So far, so good. I was very impressed with the warranty, 5yrs/3000hrs parts, 2 yrs labor. I had planned to upgrade the seat. However, after mowing, it proved to be more comfortable than I thought it would be. These mowers are not the prettiest ones out there. But, I would definitely buy one again. 48 months, no interest.


It came down to 3 mowers: 54" Hustler Fasttrack, John Deere 655, and the DC. The Hustler and DC were my two top choices. The DC dealer in my area offered full service, which was a key factor in my decision. The Deere had a 27hp Briggs n Stratton and I just couldn't pull the trigger on that engine. All 3 mowers were within $300.00 of each other so money not the issue.

Has been nothing but trouble and now today of all things the motor locks up because for some reason when I check the oil before using, it had been saying it was full but when I go to change the oil, there is none draining from the motor. It cuts fine when it's running but here in the south if you have to go without cutting your grass for 2 weeks, you may have a jungle to cut.

I have the magnum 2250. Its crap. Leaves strips of grass uncut, flames come out of the exhaust sometimes. If I have to turn it off I have to wait 2-5mins before it will start again. Ive only used it 4 times. Dealer tried tip say I'm not sitting it off properly. I had a cub cadet that had the same engine and it started fine after sitting it off. Dealer in fort smith will not help.

Stay away from Dixie chopper. Parts take forever (2-3wks) to get. Owned it 1 yr and wish i would have went another direction
