1999 Exmark Lazer Z Hp with 1550 hours. Engine replaced two years ago.

2003 Exmark Lazer Z with 3600+ hours and still used everyday as our main mower. Only big repair was swapping a half block in because compression went out on one cylinder.

I know I have talked about it a lot, but my 1993 Grasshopper 718K is still going. I use it everyday, its always been a reliable mower. It still has the original Kohler Magnum engine, even the deck spindles are the originals. Still has the old Gemini hydros. The hour meter broke around 3400 hours, so were guessing it has over 4,000 on it by now.

Here is a video of me mowing with it: http://youtu.be/0nxCex7_RC0


Another old mower I use is a Scag 36" WB. It has to be around a 1990 model, as it has the manual PTO(which I really like). It is in great shape for its age and its able to pull my 270 pound rear end around on that sulky.

I just bought a 1993 toro 37" recycler....I was born in 1993 lol. Pretty good shape new clutch(which i dont really like...electric). Rode it for the rest of the day after i bought it.. center pulley acted a little funny. Kinda pissed me off when i went to grease it and the right rear wheel bearing took 25 pumps and the left took 20. Now its in my hands and will get taken care of. But cut all day today... no problems lets hope it stays that way
