Bought a case 1650k lgp blade from a rb auction in florida about two years ago . Before purchasing the blade , we spoke with a briggs sales rep who said he was positive the thing was original hours . The blade had a new u/c on it as well. Brought the blade home, unloaded it off the low boy started plowing the snow off the yard parking lot , and what would you know the motor went on it. This was the start of a long string of repairs on the unit. There was no way on the face of the earth that this blade had the hours that the sales man had told us.
On a side note, when this thing runs properly it is a sweet blade!
