    If you're getting those numbers out of a small block your running on borrowed time.

    As Restro says--maintenance is the name of the game.

    I did service work for one lawn/landscape company that ran three Great Dane units, two Surfers and a WBH equipped with FH500V's for 8 years. All had over 3000 hours. The two brothers who ran the company were immaculate in keeping an organized oil change/filter routine. Shrouds were blown out, air filters and oil levels checked at load up every morning. It can be done.
