Hi, I'm shopping around for a used mower, I am trading a 1999 Yamaha Banshee that is in real good shape (i paid $2300 for the Banshee).... I dont know much about Encore mowers, I was thinking about checking this one out: "48 inch encore Z 48 sit down rider,1250 hrs,Hydro, bagging/Collection system.new spindle bearings/just rebuilt the hopper(impeller/bearings,brand new bags, good belts, smokes on startup but runs good" How much do you boys think this Encore mower is worth??? Also, someone offerd me a great dane surfer 52" hydro he's selling for $1900- I kinda like the great dane trade offer better, I don't like how he says the Encore smokes when it starts, does that mean it's on it's way out? I'm just starting out and want something to make it through the season with out needing me to put to much cash into it. 1200 hrs??? Thanks for taking the time to help me with this, I apprectiate it guy's!
