We own a fairly well maintained(in my opinion) John Deere 2WD 310G w/ approx.950 hrs on it.
My question: based on user experiences with various heavy equipment (particularly backhoes), what have you found to be a typical machine life before having to perform major repairs (engine, trans. , hydr. pumps, etc.) I realize that this is a very loaded question, but i've heard some rule of thumb #'s of approx. 100hrs x horsepower, etc. What has been the experience of some of the users out there? I'm trying to build my knowledge base as we don't have years of experience to rely on!
