Dixon Kodiak Zero Turn Lawn Mower

Synonymous with the zero-turn-radius concept, Dixon has been one of the best and most trusted lawnmower brands on the market for many years. The Kodiak is one of Dixon's higher end mowers, falling in their commercial grade models.


The price is quite high, running near $8000, but there are more than enough reasons for many consumers to still consider it. The Kodiak has a very low center of gravity meaning that hills of very steep grades are no problem at all, driven either parallel or perpendicular to the slope.

It is also a very solid piece of equipment that will last for years with proper maintenance. It also has more than enough power for any application I can think of (I have been using it recently to push the Wisconsin snow off my driveway). It is made of only the best materials around.

The only major issue that I have with it is that the oil drainage cap is put in a terribly inefficient place, meaning that even when I brought it in for service the mechanics all complained about it. That said, it is a fine piece of equipment that will be around for a long time.

I bought the 2007 Dixon Kodiak 60 cut. There is a know problem with the valves pulling through the head on the briggs engine. I replaced one head already and it only has 300 hours on it. Get the Kawasaki engine and it would be a decent mower..

2007 Kodiak
by: Anonymous

I bought this mower spring of 07. The first one I had , I only got 40 hours out of it in 2 seasons. It was in the shop for pto clutch , locked starter, first day I had it it mover 5 feet and lost all the hyraulic drive oil and a few other things.I called Dixon rep and demanded another mower. Reluctantly they issued me another mower. This one was somewhat better. Has leaked oil from day one. The oil drain plug has a quick release , when I turned it the hole assembly came out. I put it back in and torqued it to 60 ft lbs. After 3 mowings it came out on me and ruined a 2000$ engine. Replaced engine at my cost. Got it out this past weekend , made 1/2 a round and the pto clutch locked up. This is a 320$ part.I miss my Exmark.

we bought a dixon zero turn and it cut 45 minutes off of cutting time....BUT we have trouble keeping it going - as far as quality - you do not get what you pay for.
