    We have gotten over 2500 hrs. on several Scags. Sometimes engines have to be replaced but the Scag mowers are still in good shape. My dealer has worked out a trade in deal so I don't keep them that long now. If you do normal maintaince there's no reason not to get 2500+ hrs.

    I had 900hrs on a couple of mine but dumped them in fear of breakage. Maybe I shouldn't have.

    3000 hours on an engine is excellent. If I can get 2500 hours on an engine, I'm pretty pleased. You obviously do a really good job on maintenance.
