    Any info on the Encore Prowler ztr's...the Encore dealer is trying to sell me one, but I'm stuck on Exmark...I've seen some of their other ztr's in the field, but not the Prowler...was kinda curious if anyone has used them...

    You can find more info on-line at www.encoreequipment.com

    I'm waiting to see one of these in the flesh myself. What kind of price are you getting on them? They advertise like 19,000 blade tip speed and have pivoting front axles. I hope someone can tell us both more than I know about them!:)

    Has anyone used their Z34? I've never tried any Encore equipment,but I'm thinking a 34" ztr would be great for many residential lawns.

    That Z34 would slide right through them gates!!! But my 42" fits through a standard chainlink walkway gate. That's giving up 10" but would still probably be faster than my lawn tractor. :blush:

    A 34" would leave "pin stripes" on the lawn. :D
