    Hi

    Got my Fast Track 42" with 17 Hp Kohler back last fall when $$$'s were Killer. Just using it here at my resort I put 20Hr on it before X-mas just Mulching leaves...Now April 1 and I've started mowing I have nearly 30 hr's on it. I changed Oil at the 5hr mark and started using Amsoil with Kohler filter.

    My question is (With proper Maintenance & No abuse) how many hours can I expect this machine to give me before It starts showing signs of 'wearing out'?

    It depends on the use of the mower and the conditions it is put through.
    The 17 Kohler is not a commercial engine.
    You say your mowing your resort?
    Regardless, if you take care of it(sure sounds like you are) you should get a nice life out of it.
