    Looking at picking up a 36" encore pro line walk behind, dual hydro, great condition, under 120 hours on it. It is a 2002 model, just never got used much apparently. The engine is a 13hp Kawisaki. Starts first pull, just needs a little tracking adjustment. It comes with a grass gobbler as well.

    What do you all think this machine would be worth?

    i'd say 2200 is close, are you planning on a sulky?

    yeah, would probably pick up a proslide or something to go with it.

    sounds like their asking price of 2000 is pretty fair then.

    Thanks for the input

    too bad you are in Arkansas. I have an '02 snapper proline 36" with about 200 hours that I would part with for $1800 or $1900 with the single wheel sulky.

    2003 Grounds Equipment Maintenance Blue Book lists this unit as follows:
    Original MSRP $3997
    Trade Hi $2390 (Loan value)
    Low $2110 (Trade value)
    Average Retail $2850
    and of course, condition determines value and season sold determines demand.
    Good luck,
