    i know a guy who's best friend's uncle has 23,348 on his. he's been through 4 engines, six sets of tires, and a couple other things.

    he just won't give it up because he's got the seat broke in just the way he likes it.

    Of course. I would hate to see the actual condition of the seat with that many hours let alone the whole machine!!! No really, what is the most hours put on these machines out there?

    Friend has 757 25 air cooled kaw with 1800 hrs so far. He is looking for another 757 if you know anybody that has one. I am slowly converting him over to Scag though. I let him mow 8 of his yards with 10 days growth the other day and he was very very impressed with the cut of the velocity deck. Said he would have had to go over twice with the Deere.

    On Deere's website, they have a guy that has the 700 series with original motors with over 7000 hours. That's impressive.
