    How many hours did the bearings have on them, if they are the original bearings?

    The mower's showing around 650 hours on the meter, original bearings.

    I would have thought, greasable bearings shouldn't fail...
    But then I guess anything's possible.
    They were well greased, most if not all of the time, that I know.

    Couple of pita parts to the job but overall not too bad,
    part of my problem I didn't give myself enough time, had to leave it half through...
    Coming back, I couldn't remember one or two things, that cost me more time.
    First time I would make sure you have 3-4 hours minimum, it's not that bad
    but give yourself the afternoon, you should be good.
