    A neighbor has a Encore Z42 sitting in his yard with a for sale sign on it. It has a 16 hp B&S, 650 hrs on the meter, well used --paint pretty scuffed up, brake safety disabled, no grass chute. I called Encore and gave them the model and serial number and they said it was never registered when the dealer sold it so they have to go back and look it up manually and get back to me to let me know what yr it is. They thought a 1993-1994. He is asking $1000.
    What is it worth?

    Do you have a good Encore dealer near you for parts support?

    Thank you tb8100. I didn't buy it. He wouldn't come off the $1000. I did get a reply from Encore and this mower was mfg 8-23-96, so it is 12 years old.

    $ 1,000 is a little high, I think !!
