You aren't likely to wear any unit out. Oh unless you can fix em get a good dealer. And don't be a sissy the pistol units are some of the best. If you can't run a pistol snapper than you wouldn't be able to run a trimmer.
Ditto that. Different mowers shine more in different conditions.
A good dealer is also very important. In my immediate area you will see a lot of Bob-Cat mowers because the dealer is excellent. There are Hustler, JD, Exmark and Scag dealers as well but the Bob-Cat dealer will do whatever it takes to keep you up and running, up to and including pulling a motor off of one of their floor units.
