I purchased a used Sentar back in the fall with 775 hours on it and have been using it on my properties this spring. It is a truly awesome mower and I am enjoying it. I have a question on service intervals for the engine oil and hydraulic oil. The service manual says change oil every 100 hours and engine oil filter every 200. Is this correct? It seems a little high to me, but I tend to baby my equipment. Also, the manual says to change hydraulic oil seasonally. Shouldn't there be an hour interval? I am only working 10-15 yards a week and a commercial guy will be putting tons more hours than that. My seasonal and his seasonal are going to be totally different concerning hours and wear. Thanks in advance for any help.
