Cons:Loud, wheels tear up lawn too easy, high center of gravity - dangerous.
The Bottom Line: choose a more current model for better results.
Turning: I have the Dixon 3303 and used it twice so far. The downside of this model is that the 0-turn isn't fluid and tears up the grass by the rear wheels if you're not careful. You have to ease into the turn by back up slightly and wait allowing the front wheels shift direction before the turn begins. I've used a 3363 model and that had improvements turning. The rear wheels are larger and wider. If you have a slight slant in your yard or hills in my case, there is no purpose for these models unless you plan on tearing spots in your yard a few times. The wheel base is narrow and rear wheels are too small. The mower works great on flat yards. Probably safer since the center of gravity is small.

Noise: The turning arms are noisy when applied to a direction. Could use a better muffler too.
The good: Mower cuts well. I have St. Augustine (Floratum) and keep it high. The blades are at it's highest setting. The 30" cut is smooth and each row of cut is even and cuts through grass without bogging the engine down.
Recommendations: Probably too late since the 3303 was the early model and I would assume that the later models have been modified. I would recommend a wider wheel base, larger wheels and a quieter engine and turning mechanics. Should god with a different color scheme. Silver/stainless finish with sharper lines would make the mower pop. Black accent for the fenders/seat and other steering grips. Not having paint would allow the nicks and scratches to be easily buffed out.
