Husqvarna Terminates Dixon Brand Lawnmowers. Back in mid-August, Husqvarna announced that it would stop producing Dixon-branded lawnmowers for the North American market at the end of this year (2014).
While Dixon`s line of zero-turn mowers, walk-behind mowers and tractors will be discontinued, the Husqvarna Group will continue to manufacture and market similar products under the current family of Husqvarna Group brands.
Dixon`s line of ZTR riding mowers captured consumer interest in the 1970s as the first zero turning radius mowers affordable to most homeowners. In 1990 Blount International, Inc. acquired the company. All of Dixon`s operations were housed under one roof in Coffeyville, Kansas.
6.5 mph forward speed mows faster so you finish quicker. Fusion blades(hardened edge) increase blade life 100-200% and stay sharp longer. 6-position cut height adjustment for 1.5 to 5 cut heights.
Dixon`s history and subsequent parts availability took a drastic downward spiral after Husqvarna acquired the company in 2006 and then subsequently discontinued production of Dixon ZTR mowers in 2014.

While there are a few disadvantages to using a zero turn mower, the most significant are: The traction issues. The cost of replacement parts. The difficulties with uneven terrain.
The model numbers are located on the body of the mower near the bottom of the seat, or on both sides of the front of the body above the wheels. The serial numbers are located on the left rear corner of the riding mowers, behind the engine. The name “DIXON” is on the front of the mowers.

To start your zero-turn mower, locate and engage the parking brake. The correct starting position for your drive handles requires you to have them wide apart. Your PTO should be pushed down into the off position. Once these are in place, you can turn your key to the start position which will start the engine.

My 290 isn’t oiling chain. I tried adjusting oil flow and still no oil?
You have to remove the bar and clean it out
I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?
It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.
What kind of oil in the oil tank and how much for the remington electric pole saw ?
Bar & chain oil is the best. You can use regular or synthetic. Some say you can use atf (auto transmission fluid) or sae30 oil. I use bar & chain oil.
On a husqavarna 362 xp special 71cc chainsaw very little oil is coming out to the chain i have removed the chain and bar and cleaned and still very little oil is making it to the chain what should i do ??
Check to see if there is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the lower part of the chain where it goes into the cover, but mounted in the main case. It might be underneath the case in about the same location. Turn it CCW somewhat, if found, and check for oiling by holding the bar tip running at speed near some cardboard. If properly oiled, it will throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. If there is no adjustment, then you will have to investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Make sure to clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Hope this helps!
16″ Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw…
I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality “Bar and Chain Oil” will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.
You can get the “Bar and Chain Oil” at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.
My husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain properly. I have tried to clean all the oil ports on the bar and saw but it still is hardly pumping any oil to the chain. What could be the problem? How does the oiling system work?
The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).Hope it helps.
What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?
You will need “Chain and Bar” oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline…and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix…50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.
