OPERATE THIS MOWER.
Do not allow children to operate machine. Do
not allow adults to operate machine without
proper instruction.
Do not carry passengers. Do not mow when
children, pets, or others are present. The
operator is responsible for the safety of others
within the vicinity of the operation of this
mower.
Keep hands, feet, and clothing away from
rotating blades or other rotating parts while engine is running.
Clear the work area of objects (wire, rocks,
and debris of any kind) that can be picked up
and thrown by the mower, and possibly
damage the equipment or cause personal
injury to the operator or bystanders.
Disengage all attachment clutches, set parking
brake, and place steering speed control levers
into neutral lock (open) position before attempting to start engine.
Disengage power to attachments, stop engine,
and remove ignition key before leaving the
operator position or leaving machine unattended.
Do not attempt to adjust or repair the mower
deck, the drive system, the mower blades, or
any moving parts of the vehicle while the
engine is running. You must disengage power
to attachments, disengage PTO, set parking
brake, set steering control levers to neutral
lock, shut off the engine, and remove key
before making any repairs or adjustments or
attempting any of the following tasks:
a. Deck pitch adjustment
b. Unclogging the chute

Failure to comply can result in personal injury
or death.
Disengage power to attachments when
transporting or not in use.
Attempting to use this mower on slopes
exceeding15 degrees is not recommended.
Reduce speed and exercise extreme caution
on slopes to prevent tipping or loss of control.
Be especially cautious and slow down
when changing directions on slopes. DO NOT
mow slopes when grass is wet.
Stay alert for holes, rocks, and roots in the
terrain which can cause the vehicle to upset.
Keep away from dropoffs.
When mowing uphill, avoid sudden stops to
prevent tipping over. When mowing downhill,
loss of traction and/or braking ability can
occur. To compensate, slightly increase
ground speed and make shallow turns gradually, until tighter control is regained.
Use care when pulling loads or using heavy
equipment.
a. Use only approved drawbar hitch points.
b. Limit loads to those you can safely control.
c. Do not turn sharply. Use care when
backing.
d. Use counterweights as advised in the
Owner's Manual.
Watch out for traffic when near to or crossing roads, and obey traffic laws. Disengage
blades and wait for them to stop before

23.
24.
25.
26.
Handle gasoline with care - it is highly flammable.
Follow these guidelines:
a. Use approved gasoline container.
b. Place container out of reach of children.
c. Use gasoline only as a fuel, never as a
cleaner.
d. Never remove cap to add gasoline to a
running or hot engine, or to an engine that
has not been allowed to cool for several
minutes after running.
e. Never fill fuel tank indoors.
f. Wipe up spilled gasoline.
g. Positively NO SMOKING.
h. Never store equipment with gasoline in the
tank inside a building where fumes may
reach an open flame or spark.
i. Always have a fire extinguisher present
when using gasoline or other flammable
substance.
Keep vehicle and attachments in good operating condition and keep safety devices, such as
guards, shields, and covers, in place and working.
Do not operate the mower or attachments if
any guards are missing or not functioning
properly.
Stop the mower and attachments, secure the
mower, and inspect for damage after striking
a foreign object. Repair any damage before
restarting and operating the equipment.
Do not change engine governor settings or
overspeed the engine.
Disengage power to mower before backing
up. No mower is designed to mow in reverse,
nor can it be safely operated in reverse.
Dixie Chopper's Zero Turning Radius eliminates the need for backing up. Simply turn the
mower around within its own dimension and
proceed forward.
Do not mow with mower blades that are out of
balance or have eroded airlifts and/or split
ends.
Use personal protective equipment when operating mower or performing maintenance, such

as (but not limited to) protection for eyes,
ears, feet, and head. Do not operate or service the mower when barefoot or wearing
open-toed sandals.
Use caution when handling mower blades
during replacement or maintenance. Wear
appropriate protective gloves and clothing
and cover the sharp cutting edges of the
blades. Failure to comply can result in personal injury.
Operate mower only in daylight or good artificial light.
If at all possible, do not operate mower when
grass is wet.
Do not make sudden turns, stops, starts,
reversals, or any abrupt maneuvers, especially when negotiating slopes. The steering
speed control arms are very responsive to
slight movement. Rapid, rough, or jerky
manipulation of the steering speed control
arms can result in damage to equipment and
personal injury.
Do not run the engine in an enclosure without
adequate ventilation to the outside. Exhaust
fumes contain carbon monoxide which is
odorless and deadly poisonous to humans.
Failure to comply can result in personal injury
or death.
Do not work underneath the mower unless it
is supported safely by jack stands with a safe
working load capacity of 1/2 ton or more, a
hoist, or blocks. Failure to comply can result
in personal injury or death.
Disconnect the spark plug wires and place
the wires where they cannot contact spark
plugs when setting up, adjusting, doing repairs
on, or transporting your mower. Mower can
accidentally start if spark plug wires are connected. Failure to comply can result in personal injury or death.
Do not touch hot parts of the mower. Failure
to comply can result in personal injury.
Give complete and undivided attention to the
job at hand.
Obey all safety decals.

Special Features, Capabilities,

Major Features
the key that makes the whole system work. "Not only
will this benefit current and future Dixie Chopper
owners, the "VTC" oil will improve the performance
and add longevity to any other brand of zero-turn
mower they might currently own. This oil makes that
much difference. You have to experience the feel of
this oil in a machine, and you won't believe the feeling.
It operates so much smoother and easier that we were
able to remove the neutral springs from our machine
so that the steering levers offer a minimum amount of
resistance, greatly reducing the fatigue factor for
the operator. You won't want to go back to your
other z-machines with shock dampeners after you
operate a Dixie Chopper with the "VTC" system.
Your other machine will be more work than you
want," Evans says with a grin.
At Dixie Chopper, we believe that every machine
should pack the maximum amount of performance.
We also believe if you listen to your customers, they
will tell you what they want; and we have been
listening to our customers for years!
That is why we have introduced the Silver Eagle
Series LT2000-50 to the market. The Silver Eagle is
equipped with many of the features found on our
proven line of mowers; the same features requested
by our loyal customers. A few of those features
include:
•
•
•
•
A low center of gravity to provide stability.
A hinged floor pan to provide excellent
access to critical areas.
Exceptional fuel capacity so you can run
longer between fill-ups.
Stainless steel body panels to let everyone
know you own a Dixie Chopper!
Productivity Chart
The following is an "Acres Per Hour" productivity
chart for the Silver Eagle LT2000-50 model Dixie
Chopper mower. Efficiency ratings of 100% and 80%
are shown. Eighty percent reflects actual mowing
conditions, considering turns and overlapping.
You spoke, we listened!
Velvet Touch Control (VTC)
The "VTC" system "sets the gold standard in Zero
Turning Radius mower performance," according to
Art Evans, Dixie Chopper President. "For years,
we've been searching for ways to make the drive
systems run cooler and live longer. Of course, the
amount of heat generated by the hydro system has a
monumental influence on the overall life of the hydraulic system components. We have proven, during
our testing, that this new "VTC" oil that we have
developed will add an extraordinary amount of life to
the Dixie Chopper hydro drive system," Evans
says. The Dixie Chopper "Velvet Touch Control" system is a compilation of several factors that
include proprietary modifications to the Hydro-Gear
hydraulic pumps as well as the new oil developed by
the company. But according to Evans, his new oil is

Start-Up and Operation of Mower
6.
WARNING
Do not run the mower engine in
confined areas such as a closed garage. Take care not
to inhale exhaust gases as they contain carbon
monoxide, which is a colorless, odorless gas that can
cause unconsciousness and is potentially lethal.
Failure to comply can result in damage to equipment
and injury to persons or death to persons.
7.
To Mow:
1.
CAUTION
Handle fuel with care. It is highly
flammable. Use only approved fuel containers. Never
add fuel while the engine is running or hot. Fill fuel tanks
outdoors, never indoors. Replace fuel tank cap securely
and wipe up all spilled fuel. Failure to comply can result
in damage to equipment and injury to persons.
2.
3.
4.
CAUTION
Before starting the engine, become
familiar with all controls. Read and understand this
Operation Manual thoroughly. Always check for proper
engine oil level before starting engine. Failure to comply
can result in damage to equipment and injury to persons.
5.
NOTE: Mower will not start if steering speed
control levers are not in the neutral lock position
and parking brake is not set.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Set mowing deck height to desired cut height
(if different from factory setting). (Refer to
Deck Height Adjustment for detailed instructions.)
Push parking brake lever all the way down to
release parking brake.
Set throttle to 1/4-power position.
Engage mower deck by pulling up on deck
engaging switch (PTO).
Close steering speed control levers.
NOTE: Always set engine speed at fullthrottle when mowing, and maintain a minimum
of 3600 RPM and a maximum of 3750 RPM.
This engine speed will provide the necessary
airflow through the engine cowling to prevent
overheating, and will maintain blade speed for
a satisfactory quality of cut. If the engine pulls
below 3500 RPM when under load, slow down
the ground speed and allow the engine to recover up to the proper RPM.
To Start The Mower:
1.
Turn ignition switch to the START position.
Release key after engine starts. Key will
automatically return to the RUN position.
Allow engine to warm up, then slowly push
choke button in.
Place steering speed control levers in neutral
lock position.
Sit in mower seat.

Start-Up and Operation of Mower
Steering Speed Control Levers
(continued)
To move in reverse, pull both levers backward at the
same time, slowly and evenly.
DANGER
Do not move the steering speed
control levers too rapidly, or start and stop the mower
suddenly, especially on grades. Failure to comply will
result in personal injury or death.
To speed up the backward movement, pull levers
farther back toward you. The farther back toward
you they are pulled, the faster the mower will travel.
To turn, slow the mower's ground speed, then further
slow the speed of the right wheel for a right-hand turn,
or the left wheel for a left-hand turn.
The mower is equipped with a separate hydraulic
pump and motor for each rear wheel. The pumps are
controlled by the steering speed control levers. The
left lever controls the left rear wheel and the right
lever controls the right rear wheel.
Refer to illustration shown below of steering speed
control levers' position relative to mower wheels and
the direction in which the levers turn them.
To move forward, push both levers forward at the
same time, slowly and evenly.
To speed up the forward movement, push levers
farther forward away from you. The farther forward they are pushed, the faster the mower will
travel.

Start-Up and Operation of Mower
Zero Radius Turning
(continued)
If ground speed is too fast or blade speed is too slow,
an uneven cut will result.
To execute a zero degree turn, you must put one
wheel in reverse and one wheel in forward.
Make sure that mower deck blades are sharp to
ensure the optimum quality of cut. Refer to Blade
Replacement and Blade Sharpening procedures for
detailed instructions on how to safely and properly
maintain and sharpen mower blades.
Until you have practiced this procedure and acquired
a feel for the machine, it is possible to damage the turf
due to an incorrect input. Please be aware of and
mindful that it is possible to pull the levers back toward
the operator in such a manner that the drive wheels
will spin in reverse. This is also true for the reverse
direction, that is, if the machine is traveling in a
reverse direction and the levers are suddenly and
quickly pushed away from the operator, it is possible
that the drive wheels will attempt to spin forward.
Failure to follow the correct procedure for zero
degree turns could result in damage to the turf. When
learning the zero degree turning procedure, use reduced engine RPM and extreme caution.
Moving the Mower Without Power
NOTE: Do not exceed a speed of 2 mph when
moving the mower without power.
In order to transport the mower without power, you
must first release the hydraulic pressure by using the
bypass valve located on each pump. Lift the mower
seat to gain access to the pump valves. The valves are
a 5/8" hex head located on the valve block of each of
the pumps, with a cross hole through it. Loosen the
bypass valve on each pump, three turns counterclockwise. Move the mower. Tighten the bypass valve on
each pump, three turns clockwise.
Optimum Performance = Best Results
The mower is designed to operate most efficiently at
maximum blade speeds, which are achieved with
maximum engine speed. The ground speed of the
mower should allow the mower deck blades to maintain that maximum efficient speed. Therefore, slow
the ground speed of the mower when cutting tall
grass, grass heavy with moisture, or mowing uphill, so
as to maintain maximum blade speed.

NOTE: Replacing the mower blades is the
preferred method of ensuring your mower
blades are sharp. Sharpening blades yourself is
not recommended. However, if you choose to
do so, the blades must be balanced after being
sharpened.
Lift front end of mower and support it with a
jack or jack stands with a sufficient safe
working load capacity.
Wedge a short piece of 2x4 lumber between the
mower blade and the mower deck to immobilize
the blade while removing attaching hardware.
Remove bolts, washers, and spacer attaching
blade to blade shaft, and remove blades.
Apply anti-seize compound to threads of attaching bolts before installation.
In reverse order as removed, install new or
sharpened blade with spacer, washers, and
bolts. Make certain to keep the air lift area
(turned up section) of blade facing the underside of mower deck. Ensure that the fiber
washer (which acts as a vibration damper) is
against the blade.

Under Deck Cleaning
DANGER
Never attempt to make any
adjustments to mower deck or work under it while
mower is running. Make sure that ignition switch
is off and key removed, PTO switch is disengaged,
steering speed control levers are in neutral lock,
and parking brake is on. Failure to comply will
result in personal injury or death.
4.
5.
CAUTION
Do not clean the underside of the
deck with a pressure washer. Water can get in and under
seals and cause damage to equipment.
Clean the underside of the deck frequently. Accumulation of matter clippings seriously impairs the mower's
ability to "lift" the grass into cutting position and
discharge the clippings evenly. Matted grass clogging
the underside of the mower deck is often the cause of
uneven cutting.
6.
NOTE: There can be a 1/4-inch variation
between the forward pitch of the front and back
blade measurements. For example, both front
blade tips could measure 3 inches from the
ground, and both back blade tips could measure
3-1/4 inches from the ground.
Deck Level Check
DANGER
Never attempt to make any
adjustments to mower deck or work under it while
mower is running. Make sure that ignition switch
is off and key removed, PTO switch is disengaged,
steering speed control levers are in neutral lock,
and parking brake is on. Failure to comply will
result in personal injury or death.
7.
An uneven or lopsided cut may be caused by an outof-level mowing deck. If the quality of your cut is not
optimum, check for an out-of-level deck as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Make another pass with the mower to check
the evenness of cut.
If cut is still uneven, check levelness of blades.
Adjust deck height to the level for a 3-inch cut.
Refer to Controls and Indicators page 12.
Make sure deck height stop is turned so that the
wide side faces the rear.
Make sure that the blades are positioned with
the tips of blades pointing toward front and back
of mower. On right-hand side, measure the
distance from front tip of blade to ground. Note
measurement. Repeat this process for the lefthand side blade. Both front blade tips should
measure 3 inches, +/- 1/8 inch, from tip to
ground.
On the right-hand side, measure the distance
from back tip of blade to ground. Repeat this
process for the left-hand side blade. Both front
blade tips should measure 3 inches, +/- 1/8 inch
from tip to ground.
If blade to ground measurements are even, but
cut is uneven, consult the Service Department
of your authorized Dixie Chopper dealer.
Park mower on level surface.
Check tire pressure to make sure they are inflated to the proper pressure levels. Both front
tires should be inflated to 12 psi, and both rear
tires should be inflated to 7 psi.
If any tire's pressure is not correct, correct the
pressure(s) to the appropriate pressure level
