Dixon riding lawn mower
My Dixon Lawn Mower is my favorite yard tool. It has a zero turning ratio so it can spin around on a dime. I never enjoyed mowing the lawn before I got this "bad baby".
I start out by cutting the very bounderies of the yard and it hugs the edges and chugs up the hills and swales of the land.
At each tree and bush I am able to circle around very close to the trunk of the plant and drivers take thier eyes off of the road a little too long as I amaze them with my circling machine
I am sure my husband would describe the mechanics of this gem. I don't pay much attention to that. It works very well and I enjoy mowing the lawn more than ever.
When I ask my husband to get it out for me, I have to be ready or he will take off with it and pretend he can not hear me yelling "to get off! I am mowing the lawn!"
I realize a man would speak more about the engine and power. As a woman I am concerned about comfort, performance and safety, not in that order. If you remove yourself from the seat the blades automatically shut off. There is a key start, a blade on and off switch and of course the power lever.
The lawn mower is manuvered with two levers which concerned me at first but after about ten minutes I could easily manage it and would not want to return to a mower with a steering wheel.
For me there is nothing better than the thrill of riding my Dixon.
