What would you buy for a Z turn and Walkbehind?

    I have been looking at 48 inch Z turns and 48 inch Walkbehinds. How are the Encore mowers? They seem to be a good price point. The others that I have seen are the Scag and the Toros.

    any help?

    Well if your mowing a lot of smaller areas then a walk bahind is what you need. They are more compact and more easy to manuver in tight spots. If your areas are a little larger then definately go with the ztr. The Encore are good mowers from what i've heard. I know of several people that like them and some that don't. That goes for the walk behinds and ztr's. The Encore's I know are cheaper then the Scag's and Toro's. You should demo an Encore to see how you like it.
