    Lets hear it guys, what ztr do you have and how many hours are on it? I seen a 25 hp 42" deck Walker today with almost 3,000 hours on it. It still performed really good and they are trying to sell it. And for the price it would pay for itself in a week! So who has the most hours?

    I have a 332 JD Garden tractor with a 16HP 3 cylinder Yanmar Diesel with 5085 Hrs on it and it uses no oil - purrs like a kitten - Sounds like it did the day I bought it. -

    I have an eXmark WB Hydro which would be kind of like a ZTR - wiht 6.2 hrs on it.

    Thanks, Brad

    Well, since I am fairly new at this, (going on my third year) I dont have any old mowers. My mowers all have about 700 hours or so. I do have a friend that has a freakishly old SCAG gear drive mower, we dont even know how many horspower (you cant tell!) that has exactly 7248 hours on it. That thing just wont die! I think he is fixing to shoot it so he can get a new one. :gunsfirin
  6. You want hours? Buy Kohler or diesel powered mowers.

    Look up a thread calles the 2000 hour club. (I think that is the name of it)

    You want hours? I have a 1987 John Deere(Bunton) 48" gear drive wb with 12.5 HP Kaw on it with over 9500 hours on it. Never done any major work to it and only replaced 1 spindle bearing. Just change belts, oil and filter and keep her lubed. Just gave ol Hoppy a fresh paint job last winter. It is an absolute workhorse! Never been a fan of Deere but since it really isn't a deere, I guess I can love it!;)

    The Walker is a Cleave Addie, somebody just traded it in. I was running the 48" 26 hp efi and seen it. I thought man, that thing has made someone some money. I talked to the guy about it and he said they may use it there or they may sell it. I asked how much, he wasn't sure so he didn't say but I'm thinking around two thousand or so. He fired it up and it sounded good. I hope I could get this thing. It would pay for itself in no time and it would do wonders for fall clean up. It had the low profile all terrain type tires on it and it looked like the 9.5 catcher on it.

  10. I have a Hustler 1500 Shortcut, 23hp Kawisaki engine. We bought it in 2000 and it already has 7200 hours on it, we've only replaced the engine twice. LOL Just Joking. They both only have 230 hours on them, some where around that.

    You sure you are 18?

    Now that we have decyphered you post, you said "I have a" then you said "they both" which is it 1 or 2?

    230 hours is chicken feed in 3 seasons. 76 hours a season.
