3-19-14 New Equipment Arrivals

Not for us of course but here is what used golf course equipment costs.  I have a link to Global Turf Equipment.  This is one of the companies that buy an refurbish used equipment and then re sell it to places like us.  Just wanted to share this so you can see some costs.

  1. curiosity question – what is the average runtime hours in a year say for a greens mower? Trying to compare to the hours listed with the used equipment shown in the link to Global Turf Equipment. Neighbor Bill

    • Hey Bill, I will have to do some calculations for the piece you are looking at. Is it a walking or riding mower?
      I will get some numbers when I get to work today.

      • Average run time for our triplex greens mowers are 250 days per year and 4 hours per day or 1000 hours a year and we run 2 mowers to cut greens. The conversion from an air cooled small engine hours to miles is 90. So 1000 hours would be the equivalent to 90,000 miles per year.

        Our hour meters died years ago. But we started using them daily in 2007. So we have at least 7,000 hour on each of them (They were purchased new in 1997.) so they have the equivalent of 630,000 miles. Prior to 2007 we walk mowed and only used them for early shotguns and spring & fall.
