    I have a freind that is selling his Encore X-treme 52" 21HP it has 400 hours on it 98% paint has been in the shop for a tune up runs great. he is asking $1900.00 for the mower with no bagger system.The mower has been used on his own farm not used commercial. Do you think this a fair price and is this a good starter mower? :confused: I did notice that when you cut a straight run it wants to wander to the right can this be adjusted ?
    Thanks for the help

    I dont really know about the name Encore, But it sounds like a heck of a deal.

    You should try and post the adjustment part in the Encore Part of the forum.

    That's a great deal even though it's an Encore!

    You better make sure that nothing is wrong with the mower.....sounds to good to be true..even for an Encore!

    Thats tooooo good of a price. A brand new X-treme with a 52" deck goes new for around $6000-6500. Better make sure it is an X-treme and not an older Z model. The X-treme just came out last year and for a homeowner to put 400 hours on it in a year would be very hard to do. Plus I dont recall the X-treme having a 21hp on their 52" deck.

    I have a 36 inch encore walkbehind and it's one of the best walkbehinds I think I've run! Built well! That's a great deal, jump on it only if theres nothing else wrong with it! That steering issue can be easily adjusted. A repair shop will charge about 150 to do it, if its even that much.

    I would have to second that.

    It's still a tempting deal at that price though.

    Even a Z52 would be worth that easily! The z had pumps and wheel motors just like the Extreme does.

    Green King,

    Have you posted any pics here anywhere of yours or the cut quality?
    Just curious.
