Jacobsen Textron acquires Dixie Chopper
Jacobsen has acquired the assets of Dixie Chopper, a manufacturer of zero-turn radius mowers for the commercial and residential markets. David Withers, President of Jacobsen notes that the addition of Dixie Chopper expands the company's reach into the consumer and commercial sectors, including municipalities, with a full range of zero-turn mowers known for their speed, quality and performance.

Known as “the World’s Fastest Lawn Mower,” Dixie Chopper mowers are capable of mowing up to 6.6 acres per hour. The company's line of zero-turn radius mowers are a right fit with the Jacobsen portfolio of products.

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