    am considering purchasing this mower from a buddy, he got it from friend who owns a local SE Shop, took in trade last season and that is when my buddy got it for his son to use. However his thriving lawn service biz went t*ts up and so it is for sale to me....fully serviced, new blades and looking pretty damn good..............only $1500.00

    Mainly looking for any opinionns...good/bad.

    Thanks Mike

    I have an Encore Prowler, 60" deck, 22hp Kawasaki and it is the biggest piece of junk I have ever purchased. I can't find one good thing to say about the machine. 2 weeks after I bought it and after several trips back to the dealer about it's poor performance I wanted to trade it on a Grasshopper, to the same dealer. He flat out told me he wouldn't deal, didn't want it back, it was the last Encore he had in inventory and was done with them. Needless to say, he was not invovlved in my next 7 mowers that I purchased.
