    Hey gang -
    Another newbie question for you. I may be looking at an Encore mower tonight. 1995 model year, 48" deck, 14hp Kawasaki, $475 firm. Supposedly runs well and is in good shape. Is this a decent mower and price?

    Just need it for a residential property. Had been contemplating and engine swap onto a Scag from my current Ransome with bad variable speed pulley, but for the money this one seems to make sense.

    What do you think... yay or nay? Thanks.

    Yay, if the deck is still good. Look at it real close. Make sure it is not warped, cracked, etc.

    Nevermind, the guy just sold it out from under me to somebody who said they'll take it sight-unseen.

    Thanks a lot for the input, though. Looks like I may be back to the Scag.
