    Jim @ Turf magazine here (again).

    We tried earlier to get someone to test this mower on the job. It got complicated and didn't happen.

    So ... I'm looking for someone near any of the metro areas of North Carolina ... in Kentucky or Florida to test out this nifty new mower and give us a "how's it work under normal professional conditions" report. You keep it for a couple of weeks and submit some details, etc., as to how well it worked for you. And we pay for the field test report (not Encore).

    Any takers? If there are more than one, I have to try to match up the end-user with a dealer ... so if it doesn't work out for you, we'll be posting more field tests soon.

    Thanks! You can reply to this post or email me at jkendrick@turfmagazine.com

    Cmon Jim! Get one to me in KC and Ill demo it for as long as you want. BTW I run Encore and I love them. Easy to work on and very durable.

    Jim, being in one of the largest Metro areas in NC and having several Encore dealers here also I have sent you an email about testing this mower for you.

    Jim I am near MM lawn in NC. I am in High Point. I would be very interested in testing the mower. I am a much smaller operation then him though, just me and two employees. Guess it depends on what you are looking for. Thanks for your time.

    hey,Jim, I see your un Vt. I am as well, if you ever have something you would like demoed around here I might be game. I'm in central Vt. and service between 80-100 properties including cemetaries, condos, commercial properties as well as residential. Keep up the good work on the magazine, I especially like the field test segment as its hard to get an unbiased opinion from dealers.
