    Is 1700 hours for a mower a lot. I am thinking about buying a Scap 60".

    I'm in Michigan, I'm guessing that many hours is probably 2-3 seasons on a machine. Doesn't sound too bad to me. But going by what I run so it's hard to get an accurate measure.

    1700 hrs. is a lot of hours one a machine, considering that most of them have a lot of things going wrong at 2000 hrs. Depending on how well takin care of the machine is and what kind of deal you are getting is important as well
