    We are in need of a good solid backup mower. There is a local dealer that has Encore for under 2k w/48 inch deck. Are they worth it? Will they take some use or would we be better off with something else?

    Hey Lawnforce1, I have three Encores, all hydros with Kaw engines. Two are 36" and the other is a 48". One 36" is six years old looks and runs like new. I use that one the most, about 25 hrs a week. The other two are one year old. There is a two year warrenty on them. My only problem has been the caster bushings wear out quickly. Other than that, they are good and the price is right.
