too many. How many do you have? lets just say my first kawi is over 10 years old and still hauls like a raped date. No smoke and starts on first pull. O yeah its always had mobile 1 synthetic in it and always change the oil/filters when they need it

Don't laugh too hard but I still have a 21" Snapper Commercial with a 5 hp Briggs commercial engine that I bought in 1983. I used it on 13 yards for the first 5 to 6 years as my solo mower. It was my primary home mower through about 1996, then I let my sister use it for 2 years on her yard. After she got done with it,(no oil change or maintenance then-actually ran it low on oil) it does use a bit of oil now but does not smoke. Unknown the hours but it has done it's time.
It bailed me out the other day when the soon to be ex rider quit while mowing my rental property. Still a damn good little mower. Hours,? I'd love to know...

This may be out of line, because I run diesels, but I had 5000 hrs on a yanmar diesel, and sold it to my son-in-law, and he is still running it> - I now have a 595 JD 4WD - second year - has 600hrs. will probably run it for at least 10 yrs. and a 495 - just purchased this spring (190 hrs.) - will probably run it 10 years. These two units will produce $100,000 per yr. easy full time. I do not care if they are worth anything at trade in - they will have paid for themselves many-many times over. I will just start new. I do not like loans - Pay for a mower, use it until the wheels fall off, (set aside 5% of gross for replacements in a savings account)
