    Ok I am a homeowner and need advise

    Buy lawn tractor with kohler courage for 2000.00

    Or the wonderful quick 36 super fox with Intek-Briggs scares me.

    How many hours can I get out of the Briggs I usually put about 50 hours a year on my current mower.

    You will have no problem what so ever with only 50 hours a year. Why not the samurai

    I just do not want to spend that much money on a mower or only .5 acre.

    Yep it would last years with the briggs but I am a huge kawasaki fan, If you can afford it the kawi is the way to go.

    Cheers

    The Briggs engine should last 1500-2000 hours if you change the oil and filters every year. If you are only doing 50 hours a year, 10 years is only 500 hours. You will not wear out that mower with only 50 hours a year, but you will have age problems in 10 years + with any machine, rubber will break sown, gaskets and such. I would not be worried about it.
