    I just purchased a ZTR Toro 286E with 297 hours (62"). Before the season begins, what maintenance should I have performed and what should it cost (Ballpark)?
    Thanks!

    Grease everything, change oil, and maybe hydro fluid. Check the belts, tires and all bearings. Make sure deck is level and everything is adjusted right. Put on new blades, and fill gas.
