welcome to LS. looks pretty good, it is a belt drive which a lot of LS ppl dont like. ive had many and dont find them to be too difficult to use especially in a 36" mower. i cant tell rom the ad about the tires so check those, check and see how it cuts, how responsive the controls are, etc...i probably would offer $350 and give $450 for it. i dont know much about encore, so i cant say a whole lot about the machine itself, but it looks good. check about parts availability and service in your area though.

check out these mowers, never had one but heard great thing about them. www.betteroutdoorproducts.com

off your question just a little, i would try to stay away from pistol grip controls on a mower that i was using a lot. i suffer in my wrists now from using them continually.

hope this helps, feel free to pm me or post again if i didnt answer something.
