These Dixiechoppers are impressive mowers but I've never seen one quite like this.  I would like to know how this thing works.  It obviously doesn't articulate so all I can figure is that those wheels in the front come down and raise the front end when you want to turn.  Seems like a pain to me but I would imagine this mower to be made for very long runs.

Mighty fancy.  Cutting grass just went to 'cutting edge'.

33hp but only 56" cut.  Seems wasteful to me, but I guess it fits a small niche.

Must be shooting for big city levee districts. Around here 15 foot bat-wing makes short work of it and good blades makes for real nice look.

The tutorial that comes up after the posted video is pretty interesting.  It's a little over 7 minutes.  I gotta tell ya, that's a lot of machine to cut grass and I'm just not sold on it.  I don't need another mortgage anyway as I'm sure it would be.  Seems like a lot of trouble to raise and lower those turning wheels all the time.
