What about Encore mowers?

Went to an Exmark dealer today checking out their mowers. Person suggested I look at the Encore in the showroom. This riding mower is designed to go through a standard 36' gate w/o stopping. Said the lady "It's made to put out of business the walk behinds". It's dinky but the idea is sound. Any one have one? Reliable?

Cordially,
Sheppard

I don't have one but I suspect that unless the price is in the $2000.00 range they won't be replacing walkbehinds anytime soon. Gear drive walkbehinds offer economy and ease of service that will be around for years to come.

Encore Mower

It's around $4200.00 and it looks like it belongs in KB Toys!

It should be at the toy store. There great for junk yards, but not for quality cutting. I wouldn't buy another one.
