machine hours

I just thought it would be nice to know. most trouble free hours on a machine you have owned.please include brand of mower and engine type,and oil brand. most I have owned exmark lazer 60,2003?? kohler v twin 20hp? cant remember. 2500 hours.I was second owner,original owner said it hadnt been rebuilt. he ran mobil 10-30. yes it had oil leaks!! r&r engine just to install new gaskets.clen out engine compartment. po said it wouldnt charge,so I checked stator when I had engine out,it was in pieces.couldnt say if he had any problems with it. ran good,no smoke. the mower was ruff but cut nice.steering pumps worn out but still worked.It had been used as a commercial unit its entire life.

ok smart a** I figured I wasnt the only one that would like to know!!
how did the engine hold up? who had good luck with what oil? yes there is more to a machine than the engine.But being the most expensive part of a mower,I thought it would be nice to find out who had luck with what.
