The Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle series presents a remarkable collection of commercial-grade zero-turn mowers. These superior machines offer powerful high horsepower motor options. Users can choose from the robust Kawasaki FX engine, providing up to 27 hp, or the fuel-efficient 27 hp Kohler EFI engine. One of the primary highlights of the Silver Eagle model is its cutting-edge 72-inch Elite X Deck system, which incorporates Dixie Chopper’s X-blade technology and ensures exceptional blade overlap.
The Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series Zero-Turn Mowers offer impressive cutting and mulching capabilities. For enhanced mulching performance, the Silver Eagle Zero-Turn Mower features twisting blades. These blades, when combined with the existing X-Blade, create a double-cutting action that efficiently covers the grass. Moreover, the mower drivetrain is equipped with a Hydro-Gear 12cc pump and a Parker DG240 wheel motor.
Innovative Spindle Kit
A distinguishing feature of the Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series zero-turn mowers is the unique deck spindle kit. This kit combines a commercial spindle with a cooling fan, effectively reducing operating temperatures. By doing so, it keeps the belt and spindle cool while maintaining a clean and debris-free deck top. The top-of-the-line model in this range, the 2772EFI, can cover an impressive 6.4 acres per hour. Additionally, these mowers boast an ample fuel capacity of 8 gallons.
The Dixie Chopper Zero-Turn Mowers also incorporate convenient features that make mowing a breeze. For instance, a handy lever on the right side allows users to effortlessly raise and lower the discharge chute as needed, enabling easy maneuvering around narrow obstacles. Furthermore, the front Springer forks (available with 60- and 72-inch decks) significantly reduce the harsh vibrations commonly associated with high-speed zero-turning.
Built to Last
Structurally, the Dixie Chopper Zero Turn Mower is built to withstand heavy use. The top plate is constructed with durable 7-gauge steel, securely bolted to 2-inch square welded tubing. The cutting height is easily adjustable from 1.5 to 4.5 inches, while the manual lift platform allows for precise 1/4 inch increments. Every component of this mower is solidly built, with many parts made from cast iron or stainless steel, ensuring long-lasting performance.
Mark Johansen, Marketing Director at Kohler Engines, affirms, “This engine is designed to help commercial cutters do the toughest jobs while reducing downtime and minimizing fuel costs.”
