Lawn mower manufacturer releases new zero-turn series at industry trade show
(OCTOBER 19, 2016) – Dixie Chopper unveiled a new zero-turn series, the BlackHawk, at the GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky.
The BlackHawk series includes 11 models of the BlackHawk and BlackHawk HP. Both models come standard with a foot-operated OCDC (operator controlled discharge chute) which allows the operator to keep both hands on the steering levers while blocking the chute on the fly.
“We are very excited to launch the BlackHawk series to the industry,” said Chris Vernon, Vice President and General Manager of Dixie Chopper. “The BlackHawk series is unlike anything Dixie Chopper has created before with a complete cosmetic design update and industry-leading features like the foot-operated OCDC and electronic control panel.”
The BlackHawk comes equipped with up to 24 horsepower Kawasaki® and 25 horsepower Briggs and Stratton® engines for a ground speed of up to 9 mph. The BlackHawk features 48-, 54-, and 60-inch deck options with a Parker® HTE transmission, providing an extended life with smooth steering.
Full control is at your fingertips with the BlackHawk HP’s InCommand™ console featuring a blade timer, tachometer, job timer, voltage, fuel level, and “Soft Start” keyless ignition for easier clutch engagement. The BlackHawk HP is available with up to 23.5 horsepower Kawasaki and 25 horsepower Kohler® EFI engine options and 48-, 54-, and 60-inch decks.
