This is about 4 years old. I cleaned it every day and sprayed PB Blaster on the critical parts. Oil changed after every round with full synthetic. Last August I replaced the tranny & gearbox (cost me $1000) I'll add in a box of parts that cost me about $400. I am located by Canton in NE Ohio The good: Tires are good. Runs like a champ. Pump still works great. Spreader cover. The bad: The anti-skid stuff is about gone from the sulky (cheap fix) and the little metal shroud that covers the muffler is about shot. The new ones are $7500, so I feel that $4000 is a good price considering the new tranny/gear box.
