I have been cutting approximately 2 acres with an Encore Z-52 for the past five years. My only major problem, until now, has been a deck overhaul that ran about $600. I am now having problems with my hydrolic drive and I am considering selling this unit and purchasing a new one. We have a brand new Hustler dealer in our area who recommends the Hustler Fastrac mower for my usage (abouth 100 hours per cutting season). My question(s) is/are, should I repair the Encore and hope that nothing else goes wrong, or should I invest in the Hustler? If so, what benifits does the Hustler have over the Encore? and, if I go with the Hustler, should I go with the Fastrak 20/52, the Mini-Z 23/52 or the Mini-Z 24/52? Thanks!
