    Anyone know what the daily operating cost is for a 36" hydro w/14-15hp motor? A 48" w17hp?

    I've never broken it down this far but my educated guess would be: If you used the mower for 8 hours the fuel cost would be around $10 plus around $2 or $3 for oil changes, filters, belts etc.
     
  3. How much did you pay for the mower with interest payments if any?

    How many gal. per hour of fuel does it use and how much do you pay for fuel?

    How many hours of year does the mower operate?
