We have an old busted up, 84 inch bush hog that we use a little bit spring and fall that they handle just fine in tall grass(hay basically) and clearing brush up to 1.5 inches.
how is the oldest one holding up for the hours. Id hope to keep mine for atleast 3000 maintain it well and hope to get that atleast

the oldest one was one of the first tractors out in that series way back when. the first few months was electrical gremlin after electrical gremlin all warranty. Since then it's been great. no major repairs. I remember replacing a starter a few years back. I stick to a tight maintence schedule with our equipment. The front tires are getting replaced soon.
