    yesterday i was in englewood/rotonda doing some work and there was a boat dealer selling Encore Mowers (they use to sell B.B.).

    my question is would you buy a mower from a dealer that just sold boats car/boat audio and one brand mower?

    what i was looking at was a X-treme 52" with 23hp Kawasaki. demo retail $7995 or so Selling price $5,995.

    any thoughts or opinions.

    I dont know about prices down there but Ive been using Encore for 15 years and really like them. They are the easiest mower to work on in the field and will last a long time with proper maintnance.

    I guess my question is if that mower is in good condition and the price is right then why NOT buy it?

    If the company is an AUTHORIZED Encore dealer then the service should be up to par and they will do any warranty work.

    If not you can take it to any Encore dealer for warranty work.

    I just bought a 223 Grasshopper from a place that sells a few 'Hoppers a year, in addition to doing machine shop and automotive work. I have gotten better service from them than from ANY other lawn equipment dealer that I have dealt with.

    There hydro walks are the best in my opinion and I use the prowler mid mount and it is very good!
