    I'm just starting up a biz and I got a guy that has last years model encore for sale. He's religious about maintenance. He's selling it for 3000$. Does that sound reasonable?

    If that is a hydro that is pretty fair!

    How many hours does it have?

    Seems a little high to me. My dealer sells brand new ones for about $3500

    Not bad then. Just make sure you take it to a shop and have them check it out top to bottom.

    Ive always used Encores and love them. I think they are tough as nails!

    That sounds pretty good, I love my encores but mine are belt drives.
