    If you run a mower 5 hours per day, 5 days per week, 40 weeks per year, you will put 1,000 hours on your mower. This mower is $5000 new, easily. It's not that bad of a deal.

    The engine should give around 3000-3500 hours at least if it has been well maintained before its first rebuild. If the rest of the unit has been taken care of and not abused it should pretty well hold up to that, although there will be the occassional spindle replacement and maybe even a hydro pump replacement in there as well. . .just the costs of operation.
