    My 425 that I purchased in September of 03 has just under 600.
    I'm sure that Hans and Blackwood have in the thousands of hours but then they are both commerical operators.

    My 1445 has about 1043 hrs on the meter, but I didn't put all those hours on
    there. It is an early 90's unit.

    I purchased my 422 in April, 2000 and today I just passed 1,001 hours on the hour meter. The major repairs I have had are changed spark plugs 4 times, replaced fuel line from tank to pump, and replaced belt on 48" mower deck, other than that just regular maintenance. I believe I am soon going to have to replace the treadle cable to the hydroback as the treadle does not automatically return to the neutral position and Terry is sure it is a worn cable and not the hydroback which I thought it might be.

    On my 1445, I have replaced the steering and lift pump. I have replaced the PTO pump, and I now have to replace the rear seals on the tram pump. I have rebuilt the lift/tilt cylinders. and replaced the front rims with heavy duty ones, and new tires. I have replaced the roll-over pin and tilt assembly. I have replaced the cooling fan on the hyd cooler. The hydraback cable will need to be replaced in the near future. Replaced about 4 hyd hoses.

    WOW!! over 1000 hours on a 422 and just the normal wear & tear items...sure hope I'm that fortunate when I hit the century mark! I'm guessing it has the Kohler engine?
