Cut: Rating A-
The Dixie Chopper gives a great cut on all of their models. They have a high blade tip speed (highest legally allowed). The deck is well thought out and durable. Overall a good cutting machine.
Durability: Rating B+
A basic tough machine. Available with an oil cooler. Very heavy duty machine–built to last.
Handling and Balance: Rating B
On flat ground, this mower really rocks. However, its weakness lies in hills. This machine is really built for flat areas, so don’t buy it if your turf is hilly.
Available Accessories: Rating A
The company is very innovative. They have everything available from double blade kits to mulching kits to propane powered mowers. They are kind of the Orange County Choppers of the lawn industry.
Maintenance and Ingenuity: Rating B
They would have received a higher grade than a B if there was better hillside stability. I don’t understand why they don’t address this issue unless their biggest audience just mows flat terrain.
