Mower manufacturer Dixie Chopper is debuting its brand-new Talon family of products with the Talon R/C. The Talon R/C is a remote-controlled slope mower designed for municipalities, commercial contractors, and customers who need to maintain steep inclines safely—no operator onboard!
The Talon R/C is a true hybrid with an electronic fuel injected (EFI) Vanguard 28 horsepower engine and an electric drive system, giving low fuel consumption and the power to climb 55-degree slopes. True bi-directional mowing capability, means operators can mow forward and reverse without needing to turn the mower around. The Talon remote controlled mower should be available mid-mowing season in 2023.
