    I live in rural southwest Ms.
    I am not in the lawn business.
    I'm 52 years old and work in a papermill.
    Enough about me.

    I have three yards I have to mow every Saturday totaling about 6 acres.
    When I can, I help my 75 year old Dad mow his 4 or 5 acres at his house also.
    I have an 52 inch mid deck Encore that is a mid '90s model.
    Dad has a 48 inch Grasshopper that he uses on his inside yard and a 72 inch twin engine Dixie Chopper that does most of the work on the outlying yard.
    We also have a 150hp Case tractor with a 12 foot batwing mower for the big stuff. As you can see. I spend a lot of time mowing grass.

    My questions:
    Can I buy a new deck for my mid 90's Encore?
    And if so,about how much would that deck cost me?

    A testimonial.
    This mower( the Encore) has several thousand hours on it.
    It's powered by the 20hp. water cooled Kawasaki.
    I am on my second engine, and its starting to smoke a bit.
    My deck is about shot, but the frame and everything else is in good working condition.
    I have to say, this has been a good mower.
    Money well spent.

    Found me an abandoned Encore with only 950 hours on it.
    The deck is in great shape.
    It's on my mower now.

    The mower that you have sounds like one that we haven't made for about 10 years....So, it may be difficult to locate a deck....

    If you could, please e-mail me the serial # and the actual model # and I will do a check.

    Glad the mower has been good to you, but over the past decade, have transformed this unit into our current PROWLER Mid-Cut....Feel free to go to
