How many hours do you typically put on a machine before you think about getting a new one? We have a Scag Cougar with low hours...maybe 325 or so but I can't stand the thing. It just doesn't cut as well as our exmarks.
LOL, I may try to get rid of it next year. I didn't put it in our budget for this year. My boss always asks about the hours on the machine. I work for a self funded State Agency where I am the only Landscape Director and my boss doesn't know anything about the machines we use but he 'knows' people who do. I'm not slamming my boss cause he is a good one but I would sure like to lose this machine.
:blob3: man i wish i had some of your guys money, a 1000 hours. we run machines evryday with 3500+ on them. ill try to get some pics up here, youd never tell they had that many hours. my walker has 6700 hours, 2nd motor but hydros and pumps all original, and works all day everyday. i do have to say im very anal about maint. i think thats the key. tony
You may think this is funny but my grandfather back in 1985 bought a eXmark for me to cut his field! Although i've change a couple of things its still running like one of those new ones! plugs and oil is the key thing to keeping a machine for ever!
