Dixie Chopper Unveils New Talon Models at Equip Exposition
Fillmore, Indiana (October 20, 2022) – Dixie Chopper is debuting its brand-new Talon family of products at the 2022 Equip Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky. The Talon Family showcases two new models; Talon R/C and the Talon M/S.
Dixie Chopper, the manufacturer known for speed, performance, and high horsepower zero-turn mowers are entering into two new markets with the Talon models. The Talon R/C is a remote-controlled slope mower designed for municipalities, commercial contractors, and customers who need to maintain steep inclines safely without an operator on the mower. The Talon M/S is a robust mini skid steer with full compatibility to connect most attachments including pallet forks, buckets, augers, grapples, and more.
“We are diversifying our product line to cover a wider range of applications.” says Warren Evans, National Sales Manager of Dixie Chopper. “We are excited to offer the Talon series to our dealer network and for customers to begin putting these products to work.” The all-new remote-control driven Talon R/C mower gives operators the ability to mow where previously not possible. “As technology continues to advance, so will Dixie Chopper.” says Lisa Tubbs, President of Dixie Chopper. “The Talon R/C unlocks a completely new customer base for us and we look forward to solving customer’s problems with troublesome areas needing maintained safely.”
The Talon R/C is a true hybrid with an electronic fuel injected (EFI) Vanguard 28 horsepower engine and an electric drive system. This combination not only provides low fuel consumption, but gives this unit the power to climb 55-degree slopes. With the bi-directional mowing capability, operators can mow forward and reverse without needing to turn the mower to begin mowing the opposite direction.
The Talon M/S is designed to tackle the toughest jobs. The 24.8-horsepower Kubota diesel engine ensures plenty of power to maneuver even when under its operational capacity. The expandable undercarriage of the Talon M/S allows operators to retract the tracks to 34.5” to fit through narrow gates and pathways, or extend to 43.5” to keep the unit more stable. “The versatility of this machine is what sets it apart.” says Eli Kean, Marketing Manager of Dixie Chopper. “Instead of requiring two machines on the job site due to overall width constraints, the Talon M/S can easily expand and retract as needed for the work being performed.”
