    Mowers look nice? How fast does the twin engine dixie go? How do you like the performance of the unit? Whats under the hood of the ford?

    Ford looks like a regular V8. Maybe a V10. Defaintely NOT a diesel.

    They are great, thats why i run two. the twin is sick, its a whole different world compared to the single engine! Yeah theres twice the service cost, but the coolness factor makes up for it.:)

    The twin will top out around 13mph. all depends on the conditions. 3 or 6 blades...you know all the factors. the performance is crazy!! its like mowing with a Lamborgini. there's not much it cant handle w/ 6 blades on.

    If i have 6 blades on and its spring or fall, i can burn about 4 gallons per hour. but with that hp and torque, your getting some serious production. its much better on fuel with 3, 3" wide blades. the cut quality w/6 blades is fantastic, plus both stripe very well.

    trucks a v8. so far so good, i was a little scared getting that instead of the v10 or diesel. It pulls my 16' trailer w/ two dixies and all my other junk fine. I would buy it agin.
