    With Hydro ZTR's how long can they go without major repairs?

    What do you find to be common failures and costs after a certain amount of hours(belts, spindles, hydro pump/motor...)?

    It all depends on the mower. Different brands of mowers tend to have different problems. Also some brands are tougher to fix and may have more expensive parts than other brands.
