    I Recently purchased a Encore ZTR 60" cut with a 25 hp Kawi. After I ordered it I was skeptical of whether i made a wise decision in my purchase. HOWEVER, after using it for 2 weeks i am nothing but pleased. I have been in the business for about 5 years and have only used walkbehinds. The Encore has more power than i need and i am able to mow stait, well cut lines at about 8 mph. This machine will improve cutting time more than i would have expected. This is going to be a good season.

    Please let me know if you have any experience with Encore products. Is there anything i should watch out for or be aware of?

    I take it was a PROWLER. Was it a Mid-Mount deck, or an Out-Front deck?

    it is a midcut, but it is the z series, not the prowler. They are similar though.

    The Z series is a homeowner, cheaper version of the Prowler priced less....

    smaller pumps and motors and a cheaper thinner frame..

    good luck using this mower commercially
