I saw a thread on here about Dixie Chopper and there propane mower. I was talking to my dealer today and he was telling me Encore has a Propane unit comming as well. The diffrence among several diffrences is the Dixe uses a generac air cooled engine. Which is probably pretty good. The Encore is using a 31hp three cylinder water cooled dihatsu engine which I know is real good! Just thought I would pass it along!
