They will become part of Alamo Group’s Agricultural Division.”

The American trade publication Rural Lifestyle Dealer, reported that Rick Raborn, the Executive Vice President of Alamo Group’s Agricultural Division said in a memo to their U.S dealers, "Moving forward, Alamo Group Inc. will continue to manufacture, sell and support Dixie Chopper products as part of its Agricultural Division.
