Working in his barn near Greencastle, IN, Art Evans knew there had to be a better way, and in the year 1980 the first Dixie Chopper was born. He later provided the first zero-turn lawn mowers built specifically for commercial mowing contractors.
Still family owned and operated, Evans remains active as the company's chairman, but you won't find him sitting at a desk at Dixie Chopper headquarters (still located on the original property). He spends his days in the company's research and development department where he continues to provide ideas and inspiration to the Dixie Chopper engineering staff and manufacturing team.
Known as "the World's Fastest Lawn Mower," Dixie Chopper mowers are about much more than being fast. The company prides itself on providing quality and reliability in addition to speed. "It's not enough to just be fast," Evans states. "We need to be the best. We want to produce a mower that has many years of useable life left after it is paid for."
