I only got 750 hrs on my blower. My dealer say's I should get 1400.hrs out of a harden steel replacement. Do you feel this to be true and worth the extra $105. for this.

Yes, I would say so. The labor is the same and the price is only $100 more I believe. If it last twice as long you are saving 2x price and labor.

How long your blower housing lasts depends on how abrasive your soil is. Sandy soil will wear the housing faster. This is what the harder housing is designed for. My walker has 1400 hrs on the original housing. Its just starting to wear thru so I'm going to replace it with the harder housing.
