Hey just wanted to know what kind of hours u get out of your mowers before you need to replace it.
From years of reading these post 3,000+ hrs is not unusual. That would be a good starting point for you.
3000 is high break down hours, 2000 is still a fairly reliable machine. hit or miss with everything though
When it becomes too unreliable. Breakdown time costs me more than anything.
500 hours or 5000. When I feel it's hit or miss on whether it will make it through the week, it's gone.
Until the wheels fall off.
It really depends on how you service your equipment, good regular service most engines will run reliably up to 2000 hrs without much of a problem. Keep in mind you will still need to replace blades, belts, blade clutch, spindle bearing and so on. Most of the time the engine will be the least of your worries.
