    Yes, that's right, I love my prowler. I know most of you are exmark fans among the other more popular brands, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    It's a 61" cut, 27hp Liq. Cooled Kaw. and its pretty mean. I was flying at least 8mph mowing thick grass and leaving a perfect stripe. Speaking of stripe. . . it leaves a great one without any accessories! I bought it with 244 hrs (demo) on it and a 2 year warranty. Spindles are no-maintanence and that saves time. PTO shaft-driven blade system is very efficient. Have any of you used the newer encore prowlers?

    Rook00, Congratulations on your new Prowler. I have the 52" 23 hp ± 700 hrs no problems or mechanical failures. Like you said the quality of cut is excellent and the key is in that articulating deck.
    Mine also stripes good and I always like to look back at the stripes done without a roller or anything.
    Enjoy your Prowler. You'll love it.

    You guys really think the articulating deck makes a difference a lot of the time? Interesting idea. I'd like to see a video of one in action. Does it help traction too?
