    i have the same mower for three years now and its been good, but i don't use it all the time. i use it on one commercial account to mulch a narrow strip in front of the building to keep from having to bag.

    I don't have that exact mower, but I still use my Encore 36 Proline WB with a Kawi engine bought new in '96. Has never broken down or given me any problems.

    I used an Encore 48" walk behind since 1990 and just sold it this year. Never any problems could let it sit for 2 years and one pull it fired right up. Good machines. IMHO
