    I had a T-3100 got rid of it at 1400 hours because it was nickle and dimeing me with problems now I have a Exmark Lazer Z 60 inch it has 1473 hours so far only problems were a pto clutch about 300 dollars, deck struts and frount caster bearings, I am happy this mower it is solid. But who knows 1473 hours is alot of run time. When do you get rid of your?

    I still have mowers from 1994. They are never used but I kept them so I would never have to turn down work. I also have an old beat-up 1988 f250 that I never use but keep it in case I need a back up or just need an extra truck every now and then.

    I have Wb and Z from 1998 and still run good. We get at most 2 years out of our commercial 21s.
