    Reading this post reminded me of a Scag I saw for sale (on eBay I think) that was regarding over 2K hrs as "low hours". Made me wonder how high the hours would have to be to be regarded as "average or high" hrs? :)

    As a teenager I was on a crew that maintained a 400 acre campus. I ran TT's with over 5000 hours as well as Kubota's. The mowers were run 10 hours a day 6 days per week. My scag dealer has seen TT's with 7000 hours!!

    Oh yeah, that happens. In fact my last mower had a 4 cyl International gas engine (C60) in it, and when I sold it (with over 7500 hrs on it) the tractor was running as tho the engine was brand new. It also never leaked or used 1 drop of oil in the 30+ yrs I had it.

    I guess I'm just not used to having anyone refer to a Z (with over 2K hrs on it) as having "low hrs". Maybe he's had some good luck in the past and has run mowers with a lot more hrs on them. :)

    In the zero-turn mower dictionary, 2000 would not fall in the definition of low hrs.

    500hrs or less I would consider lower hours.
    2000hrs I would consider the end of life and a money pit for the regular mower guy.

    One can keep just about anything going if you throw money at it and can afford down time.

    That has always been my way of thinking too.

    So true!
