Anyway, there is a stark difference between a mower with only 300 hours and one with 1000.
You should be able to tell just by examining the wear and tear on it.
I'm not a rocket scientist but it would seem to me that the battery would run down WAAAAAAAY before the 1000 hour mark.
Pull up your britches, the BS is all around you.
I left the key on in a near new Grasshopper and it took about 50 hours for the battery to run down.
