So there are either two takes on running and selling equipment, either run the mowers until they die or sell them before 1,000 hours to take advantage of the resale value. Which makes better financial sense? Should I sell my equipment before they hit 1,000 hours so they still have a decent resale value or should I plan to keep it until it dies? We are talking ztr/wb lawn mowers, I will be keeping the two strokes until they die. I am very happy with my equipment and would purchase the same (but new) if I sold it... Lets hear it.
