Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series Zero Turn Mower

Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series Zero Turn Mower

The Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series zero turn mower is a line of commercial-grade products with some high horsepower motor options. You can choose a Kawasaki FX engine with up to 27 horsepower or a fuel efficient 27 horsepower Kohler EFI. Their premier Silver Eagle model has the new 72-inch Elite X Deck system with Dixie Chopper’s X-blade technology and blade overlap.

The Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle series zero turn mowers will both cut and mulch. To boost mulching performance, Dixie Chopper’s Silver Eagle zero turn mowers can utilize a twist blade. When added to the existing X-blade, the twist blade creates the required double cutting action required for mulching grass. Its mower drivetrain features Hydro-Gear 12cc pumps and Parker DG240 wheel motors.

The Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series Zero Turn Mower

These Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle Series zero turn mowers offer a unique deck spindle package that couples a commercial spindle with a cooling fan to reduce the operating temperature. This cools the belt and spindle while at the same time keeping the top of the deck clean from debris. The top end model in this series, the 2772EFI can mow up to 6.4 acres per hour. Fuel capacity is 8 gallons.

These mowers also have a handy lever on the right side that lets you raise and lower the discharge chute at will, letting you navigate around tight obstacles when needed. The front Springer forks (60″ and 72″ decks) actually do quite a bit to reduce the sharp vibrations inherent with running a zero turn at high speeds.

In terms of construction, the top plate is made from 7 gauge steel which is bolted down, not welded, to the 2″ square welded tube. Cutting height can be adjusted between 1.5 – 4.5 inches, and the manual lift deck goes up or down in 1/4″ increments. Everything on this Dixie Chopper zero turn is solid, with many parts either made from serviceable cast iron or stainless steel.

“This engine is designed to help commercial cutters power through their toughest jobs while reducing downtime and minimizing fuel costs.”

– Mark Johansen, Director of Marketing for Kohler Engines
