    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.
