    I am rather new to the buisness. Recently i bought a 48" lesco for $700 with 1,400 hours on it, It looks to be in really good shape. I am just wondering if i should have the pumps rebuilt ( i dont know how long they last) I use to have a belt driven so this is my first hydro. Or should i not fix what is not broke?

    If you are just starting likely cash flow is tight. I would keep what you have for future costs. If it runs fine than leave it. We've had pumps go at much less hours and have had them last 2000. Change the fluids and keep an extra $500 around for emergency repairs.

    Just like Racer said keep the money for other things if it works don't mess with it:waving:

    Never fix what is not broken.
