"Little People Big World" star acquires a new mower for his farm.

October 15, 2010

The 2011 Dixie Chopper Silver Eagle 2760HP will be featured in an upcoming episode of TLC's "Little People Big World."

The half-hour episode will feature Matt Roloff acquiring the Dixie Chopper mower to use on the 34-acre Roloff Farms, a pumpkin patch operation north of Hillsboro, Ore. For six seasons, TLC has chronicled everyday life for Roloff, his family, and their experience of running a farm.

Roloff and his staff aren't strangers to Dixie Chopper mowers. But the new mower arrived by special delivery. Dixie Chopper Marketing Manager Kraig Richmond, Territory Manager Tom Metz and Marketing Assistant Bryon Hurst delivered the Silver Eagle 2760HP to Roloff by truck and trailer, driving 5,000 miles round trip from the company's headquarters in central Indiana to the Portland area.

The model features a new roll bar and retractable aircraft-style seatbelt. And while Roloff might be small in stature and unable to reach the floor, he can operate the zero-turn mower without any modifications because its steering, acceleration and braking are done with hand levers.

The new Dixie Chopper can be seen in action in the upcoming episode "Take a Hike," which is scheduled for 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 15 on TLC.
