    Any of you guys use these mowers? We have a vender pushing hard to have us demo one. When you look at price after rebates and stuff they look attractive, especially compared to a new Laser, also seems well built but will it stand 50-60 hr weeks for 2 or 3 seasons? Any thoughts??

    I have Encore walkbehind, and it has a great cut, and also makes a nice stripe. I dont put 50-60 hours on it a week, but I have a had it for three years, and no problems.

    I have a 36" pro-line that a customer gave me about 6 -7 years ago. Cuts great and no major problems yet.

    I've used an encore walkbehind for about 2 seasons and nothing has broken down yet, and it cuts pretty well.

    I have a 61" prowler. Great mower. My dealer never has parts in stock. Good thing the mower hardly ever breaks down.
