Dixie Chopper hits prime time

Dixie Chopper will be showcased to a prime-time national television audience this spring.

That's when the "World's Fastest Lawn Mower" teams up with "America's Favorite Game Show."

That's right, Dixie Chopper will have a spot in the showcase portion of a rare prime-time episode of "The Price is Right" in late April or early May on CBS.

A Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle mower (model 2744) will be up for bid as part of at least one showcase unveiled at the end of the April 30, May 7, 14 or 21 program. The longest running game show in TV history is taped at CBS Television City in Los Angeles.

Last spring, a Dixie Chopper mower was included in a showcase on the daytime of "The Price is Right." However, no contestant ended up winning that showcase, which was featured on one of the final shows of the legendary Bob Barker's 35-year career as host.

Now hosted by comedian Drew Carey, "The Price Is Right" airs at 11 a.m. daily on CBS (that's WISH, Channel 8, Indianapolis, and WTHI, Channel 10, Terre Haute, in the Greencastle area).

The prime-time version will air on those same stations beginning at 8 p.m. EDT.

Dixie Chopper's Silver Eagle model 2744 comes with a 27-hp engine and a 44-inch mowing deck.

And the price? It's right, of course -- at $7,200 MSRP.
