    We average 400-500 (depending on the amount of rain we get). But last year we put a little over 750 one of our new Exmarks on one that was operated by a 73 year old guy. He strictly mows while we have a high school kid with him trimming.

    Holy Cow '900+ hour a year guy'!... or should I call you "Iron Butt"? Do you put that much time in the seat yourself? How do you use your Z? I'm guessing you're down South. Maybe mow a municipality or park all day? Wow!

    FYI for Ferris owners when looking at your hours on your zero turns- remember Ferris is the only mower that ONLY registers hours when the blades are on, and not when they are running or in transport. My dealer always tells me to add on 10-20% of what the tachometer reads to get an accurate amount

    I picked 100-300. We usually get a dry spell that slows things down. Hopefully it won't be like that this season.

    The amount of hours on our ztr's vary our Walker is about nine months old with 360hrs. We probably average about 300hrs on our most often used mowers.
