Encore 32" Walk Behind

I just got a 99 Encore 32" Walk Behind it needs new tires but it was $300. Does anyone on here have one of these? If so how are they?

I love my encores. Been running them for 14 years.

First post here.

I just recently bought a 2002ish 32" Encore WB for $600.

I've only been using it for about a week now and I really like it, have not really heard anything bad about them.

Been doing this for approximately 2 months so far and have about 15 weekly accounts at this point, the Encore is definitely better than my 21" Honda, has cut my times in half.

I ran them when I started. Dealer support locally was horrible, that's why I droped them. I still have the 32", it's a good machine, try JThomas for parts, or factory direct (website). Buddy bought my 48, both have been repowered, re-transmissioned, etc. but will still run as needed. I need to go thruogh the 32 (oil/grease /blades)as my 36 Lesco needs to go to the shop as drive is slipping. It'll get used till the Lesco is fixed.

Has anyone had a problem with their Encore choking and wanting to die while cutting?
