Encore just emailed me about their 2004 lineup. I've never used Encore. I'm strictly an Exmark fan. Who uses Encore and how do you like them? There is a big time guy here where I do business and he uses Encore and nothing else. He's swears by these mowers and his work clearly shows that they leave a really nice cut. Encore's new exclusive side-to-side articulating suspension has a floating deck that follows the terrain with the front wheels but separate from the mower chasis, making this the only mid mount in the industry with front wheels that will maintain ground contact over rough terrain. This rough, bouncy ride, no scalping, better traction and stability, better cut! This suspension smooths out the ride so you can cut faster and ride easier. The Prowler's 24" Super Turf drive tires and extra-wide front wheels are the largest in the industry. Combined with a low center of gravity and wide drive tire stance you'll get unmatched stability on wet grass and hillsides. So, what do you guys think? It's still doesn't say Exmark.
