I like were I am now Webster, irondequoit, and border of penfield...

I did the same with my encore wb. Bought it for $100 with a blown engine. Looked better then yours though haha. I watched craigslist for a year and a 14 hp kawi popped up. $200. 2 hours later the machine was running and mowing. $300 48" encore premier. Cant beat the fixer uppers. But i would never do that if it was a main machine. Main machines stay new.
