A commercial mower with 300-500 hours is still going to have alot of life left. One with 1000 is going to be nickel and diming you on parts and upkeep. There is nothing really complicated on these mowers the owners manual tells you all the regular maintenance that needs done (which is all simple by the way). The biggest pain in the butt is changing the blades out. For a homeowner like yourself just cutting your own lawn i would guess you could possibly go a month or two before the blades will need sharpened so that shouldn't be a problem. For you I would say change the oil and filter once a year, change the airfilter twice a year, and grease 3 times a year, and change the blades monthly. With your useage the hydro oil is rarely going to need changing.
