How to get a dixie chopper repair manual

Don't seem to find a 27060 classic. The only classic available is a 2760 or 2760T or 2760W.

Best to go to this Dixie Chopper support site and select the model carefully. You may not find a service manual but depending on what you may want to repair, the parts manual may be sufficient.

Lawn mower, Dixie Chopper

Sounds like a linkage issue. Since your mower is new that means it's under warranty. If you do any work to it you will void your warranty. Instead I suggest contact your dealer.

What would cause my craftsman zero turn to die when i engage the blades?

First, sort out between two possibilities: 1. The safety system is killing the engine -- for example, if the seat switch is faulty or misadjusted, the engine ignition is killed when you activate the blade engagement switch. 2. The blades, spindles, or belts are binding or stuck, which would "drag" the engine to a stop. I suggest you remove the belt that drives the mower from the engine. If the engine still dies when you engage the blade switch, it's problem #1. Check all connections, and check the seat switch with an ohmmeter. If the engine does not die, then you have mechanical drag. With engine off and the belts taken off, turn each spindle to find out if one is frozen or binding. Good luck!

Engine chokes & dies when deck PTO engaged...

you need to start with your electric clutch and then backwards to your idler pulleys and deck spindles and bearings.
your electric clutch should almost stop the blades instantly when disengaged ,check the center bolt in the clutch to be sure it is tight also
remove the belt from the electric clutch and energize clutch any noise? sometimes the bearing goes bad in the clutch itself.
check all of your 3 spindles for noise and loose. remove belt and spin by hand and listen for quiet and they should turn free with no binding
check blade tightness
any item the belt goes around needs to be looked at for secure and operable.
