at 1000 hours, a TT doesn't drop that much in value.

in a typical 40 hour work week, 25% is travel, 20% is trimming.
so 55% of the time the mower is running.

40 hours times 30 weeks is 1200 hours x .55 or 660 hours.

Most companies will put 450-660 hours a year on that machine,
so a 1.5 to 2 year old machine will have 1000 hours on it.

I know I wouldnt be selling MY $7,000 machine for $3000 halfway through season 2.

$3,000.00 is typical in my area for a Turf Tracer with 1,000 hours. Here's a good deal on a 2012 52" with stand on and electric start... only 600 hours.
