What's the most hours you've put on one engine?
Some of you have said you've put like 3000 or more hours on a mower but was that with the same engine without being rebuilt?

I haven't personally done this, but I have a good friend who owns another company near me who has over 3700 hours on one of his Honda mowers. That thing is incredible, it keeps going and going. That's with the original engine.

One of my old Lesco Walkbehinds had over 2200 hours on the engine before it died.. Was never rebuilt and after it died I just bought a new one to replace it..

Buddy had a Dixie Chopper he bought for 750 buck that had 8500 hrs on it. Until he lost control and went into York River.

My 1977 Snapper 21" mower still has the original 4 HP Briggs engine on it W/ no re build. I would say it has about 5500 hours on it. Great little machine!!!

Correction, that Briggs engine has 15,000 hours on it.
