    My ranger is still going with 338,000+ on it! My 2002 Exmark Viking has over 7000 hours on it, and everything is factory save a valve replacement ($450.00) at around 3000.

    This is why an hour meter is so important. How much of that 20 hrs a week was driving time, loading/unloading, trimming, clean-up, etc. My guess is you have less than half of those 7,500 hrs. In an 8 hr day, I sometimes only put 3-4 hrs on the machine. It seems longer, but in reality, the mower isn't running the entire day.

    I'm calling you out on that one. I've run mower's that have out lasted the hour meter. And I didn't realize mower's died!

    Seems a couple thousand hours on comml machines seems the norm.
    I am not one to hold to the bitter end though....there isn't anyone out there that will take a heap of junk off your hands for any kind of real $.

    Best to rotate well before shot.
