How many hours are guys getting out of their walk behinds? The ones with the ecs style controls? Also wondering about quality of parts. The exmark turf tracer I own has such quality and durability, the blade belt has lasted 800 hours now! But i do like the larger engine and tires they put on their 36 inchers

I'm coming up on 1900 hrs. on one of the TT's. (though I don't keep belts for 800 hrs. lol)
I just bought back a 48" TT from a guy who bought it and parked it-maybe used it 3or 4 times?
anyway, it's an older model/year-wise, but newer hr. wise, used it yesterday and it cuts and handles beautifully.
I originally bought it from the dealer who took in on a trade, while it was literally brand new, so it's home again!

Yeah my point is, do I want to spend $1000 less on a walk behind that breaks down a lot and you cant pass on in your will?

You’ll have to change your name to riding not green
Yeah, I get that a lot, but no, not really as the user name has nothing to do with the fact I have a JD.
I have explained all that before on here. It was supposed to be Ridin' The Green (as in green grass for greenbacks), but when I tried to sign up with that name, it said someone else was using it so I shortened it. I have never seen the other member post once though.
