    I know that it is not relivant to how much work someone does, or the money you make. I was just wondering how many hours a year you guys put on your mowers and what kind of mower. When i say "kind of mower" not exmark ,scag deere,etc. I mean 36 walk beheind, 60 zero turn, 11 foot wing mower, etc. Also if you are solo or have a crew and how many yards a week you cut.

    We have a 52 Turf Tiger that was a year old in June and now it has almost 600hrs. We have a Walker we bought in May and it has 215 hrs. We have another 52 Tiger we just bought and a 61 Tiger we put a few hundred hours a years on. We maintain about 45-50 properties a week. They very in size from 5,000sft to multiple acre accounts.

    bought new this year...I have about 230 hours on it....should end season w/ about 300. Started w/ about 30+ accounts in April....up to about 80 active accounts right now. 95% 1/4 acre lots...then a few bigger ones. I'm hoping to get 1500 hours out of this thing. But I have no idea how long it'll last before something major goes wrong. I have a 42" mini fastrak w/ about the same amount of hours on it (I'm guessing...no hour meter).

    Peace,
    Gary

    I've been too busy to check out this site for a while, But this week I had been thinking about hours on equipment and thought about posting on this just to see if anyone had considered it too.
    My 48" WB has the most at 4200 hrs on it and still going (17hp Kawi w/ mob 1 syn30w oil), that is about 900 a year. My GD 52" Stander I do 40 Hrs a week on it. I kill my smaller 21's in a year mostly b/c of lack of care. my work season is only 5 months!
    what made me think about this was my truck has 2600 hrs on it, or 88,000 miles and it is only 4 yrs old.

    so... would that mean my WB has 160,000 miles on it? :) (I know it doesn't) :hammerhead: but I do spend more time on equip than any thing else.
