    Worldlawn Cobra Zero Turn

    I have been looking for a while at the Worldlawn cobra zero turn mowers and I am leaning towards getting a 60" deck. They have great specs as far as the equipment goes, kawasaki fx motors, separate pumps and wheel motors, 7 guage deck, rops, etc, and even though they are partly made in china and assembled there they seem to be a very solid built machine. Does anyone have any experience with this brand and any opinions they would like to share. Thanks.

    Re: Worldlawn Cobra Zero Turn

    Dealer here near me. He gets in about a truckload a year and sells them all by about May ist. Fellow here in town has one and uses it to mow some fairly large properties, about a half block to a block sized. Several farmers own one as well as my doctor who lives on a farm. Several acres is the size of most of those mows. They do a nice job, are built heavy, have good equipment on them. I see them at the dealers place for service in the spring , but he claims none yet brought back for repairs. To be honest I have never seen him working on one other than general service. The owners seem to like them. They seem to be the old Encore units and those seemed to be old Exmark units. I had the catalog this spring, the whole unit seems to be made in Nebraska, and all the equipment on them was listed as made in America. There is a fair amount of machinery at the old plant to make the units from what I have heard. They are owned by Chinese investors importers.

    Yes, from what I understand they are chinese owned and recently aquired encore. The mowers are still assembled and partly manufactured in china and then shipped here. Most of the major components are made in the usa such as the engines, pumps, motors, wheels, etc and then shipped overseas. Eventually I think they would like to do all the assembling here in the states and maybe the manufacturing also, but not sure. Encore is still made here in the plant. I am glad to hear that your delaer has not had any problems with the untis other than the yearly maintenance. Thanks for the reply.
