Jacobsen Textron has acquired the assets of Dixie Chopper, manufacturer of zero-turn radius mowers.

Jacobsen, A Textron Company, produces outdoor power equipment for professional contractors and greens care, including: reel mowers, contour and large area rotary mowers, sprayers, aerators, and dethatchers.

Dixie Chopper, based in a Coatesville, IN, manufactures commercial and residential zero-turn mowers, including the best-selling Classic.

Jacobsen will continue to operate Dixie Chopper out of the company’s Indiana facilities and its existing management team will join Jacobsen.

Dixie Chopper promotes its mower as “the World’s Fastest Lawn Mower,” capable of mowing up to 6.6 acres per hour. It makes eleven models of zero-turn mowers, from the residential Zee2 with 21 HP Kawasaki engine and 42-inch deck to the industrial XCaliber Twin with two 27 HP Generac engines and 74-inch deck.

“The addition of Dixie Chopper expands our reach into the consumer and commercial sectors, including municipalities, with a full range of zero-turn mowers known for their speed, quality and performance,” said David Withers, President of Jacobsen.

“The joining of Dixie Chopper and Jacobsen offers an opportunity for Dixie Chopper to reach a global market and expand brand awareness in the process,” said Dixie Chopper Chairman Art Evans.
