weve got an 02 exmark 48" belt driven walk behind with 15hp kaw that just went 11 years cutting 100 1/4 acre lawns per week 8 months per year with only oil / filter / spark plug changes , the oil level was ALWAYS watched and kept full through out every days work . there was other minor maintenance but i cant remember it all . it was still going strong but burning alot of oil til last summer a guy was filling in for my partner and forgot you had to check the oil about every 3 hours cutting time and ran it dry . it still runs but has become very low powered bogging down in medium length grass . we ended up putting a new engine on last week . also , we always used any cheap standard oil like a meijers store brand or which ever
