    i know this is based upon ussage, but under normal conditions what is the average life expectancy in term of hours of a tuff torq K-57 hydro transmission? i was trying to get an estimate as to how my tractor will hold up over higer hours. i have a whoping 40 hours on it already:laugh: i was hoping to get at least 800 hours on it before i had major problems. any ideas? thanks.

    this is in conjunction with my other post http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=149929

    also, how much of a toll does snow plowing put on the transmission for a 50x8 ft driveway and 4 car flat parking area.

    Is that the same tranny, as was on the old square looking ones?

    If so, I've seen several of those with the Vanguard engines nearing 3,000 hours on original equipment. It's all in how it's cared for, used, and what the average working conditions are.
