    I bought my 422 in 2000 and it now has 1,793 hours on it and that is the Subaru engine. The last several years I have cut down on the hours since I got my 1845 which I use for most of my mowing. I mow about 6 acres plus about 1 1/2 miles of trails. I just use regular motor oil in both the engine and hydraulic system. Most of my use with the 422 is bucket work and mini hoe plus getting firewood. I used to average about 180 hours per year but now it is more like 140 per yr.

    I figure I am putting around 60 to 100 hours a year. I have had 3 hour meters fail. Figure I will do the diesel purchase as a guage. 1.6 gallons per hour. 80 to 150 gallons purchased a year....

    I think I got it in 2007 but would have to check, didn't use it nearly as much as I do now. was running under 50 hours the first 3 years as I was clearing land.. Now lots of mowing (24 man hours to mow our property if I do a detailed mow).

    I figure I probably have around 600 hours max... I guess it isn't yet broke in from what diesel people tell me...

    I actually got to put 25 minutes on it mowing tonight! We finally got some rain and the weeds popped up.

    Good to see your Robin still going strong after all those hours. I only average about 80 hrs/yr. Would be more except I use the F250 for snow plowing.

    I run about 300 hours a year. That depends on amount of snow but normally I do about 280 in summer and 20 total in winter.

    So where are you now? Sounds like about 2700 hours. Is this on the original engine?

    Hey Pajoube how many hours total do you have on your machine? I mean from when you bought it not just from the motor swap.
