The guy wanted to give it to me but I couldn't just take it. Gave him $40 for it. It's a 2002 Dixon 3014, my first zero turn mower. 36" cut with an Intek 13.5 HP. Even has an oil filter on it. Gonna take some fixin, one drive sprocket had 3 teeth broken off. Went ahead and replaced the one for the other side while I was at it. Had to clean the carb, of course. Good old Ethanol!

 

This is not a hydraulic driven unit, has the two cones and 4 chains running it. Last pic is of most of the drive system.

I didn't know they had that kind of drive system on the zt. I thought they were all hydraulic. Good Score!

Great find!  The cone drives on those work well and are reliable.  Some people hate them.  Keep everything adjusted, and you will be happy.  All the moving parts in that drive system wear though.  They require occasional rebuilds.  All parts are available at your local dealer or online.  There is plenty of info out there on adjusting, rebuilding, and maintenance.  Hit the Googlewebs.  Good luck with your new toy.

Nice find. Your lucky it's one of the newer ones and has an access to the drive cones. The older ones you had to take the whole body off to adjust the drive cones and put it back on to check and see if you got it right.

Good mower but get hard on an old man shoulders holding the levers in all the time.  Cone adjustment is real tricky also.  As I remember have 2 adjustments to each cone.  On has to be turned twice as much as the other to get the same movement.  Been to long since I had one but they do a real nice job of mowing.

I'll be learning how to adjust! Thankfully, the handles are adjustable. Just got to get everything else set right.

Interesting drive set up !

It's definitely different. Would have to study that one for a while to figure out how it works

It's really rather simple.
