    I just bought a used TT23KC made by Exmark.
    It looks clean and well maintained.
    It has 1588 hours on it. What kind of life should I get out of it?
    I will be using it on my yard of 5.5 acres.


    Thanks for any help.

    It all depends on what kind of maintenece it had before you bought it. If it had good prevenetive maintenece 3000 hrs should be pretty easy

    :D
    Thanks for the reply.
    The man I bought it from had it serviced just before I got it.

    I will be storing it out of the weather. The day I picked it up was raining very hard. Do I need to any extra maintenance?
    Thanks for your help.

    I would empty all fluids and replace with synthetics they will really give you alot more hrs I'm talking 1000s along with regular maintenece. Good Luck

    I have never worked on hydraulics before, can I just drain and refill the lines or are you just talking about the oil ?
