Repeating what was said above - the 997 is built like a tank. 1600 hours is nothing for them as long as it was cared for and well maintained.

Since you already bought one I don’t know what your question is.....

If you don’t have the service records for it, change all the fluids and filters and enjoy it.

Like coaltrain said... put some elbow labor into it. Don't trust what you think was done as in servicing. Some people use/drive their mowers to extreme and wait till they die on the spot. If you don't have a good grease gun...get one that has the nozzle that will fit on the zerts and don't over-do-it on putting too much in the caster wheel spindles as you will push the seal out. Same goes for the mower deck zerts on the spindles. And you might as well buy you two gals. High-Gard JC20 hydraulic fluid. and two ...very expensive filters. While you are doing all that servicing, check closely the transmissions fans to see if the blades are worn or damaged. It don't take much from trigs or objects to tear up those fan blades.

Well I think you have a new mower there. I have 3000 hours on mine and brother has 3500 hours. 99% of the hours aren't from us but from non-us born non-english speaking individuals. They can take abuse. But change the fluids and make sure the fuel tank pickup screen isn't plugged with grass. The suspension seat is worth it. I am still working on the rear grill guard and jack kit to safely clean the mower deck. Also added lights to might tied to a relay so I don't leave on with oem kit and drain battery.

Make sure your radiator and air cleaner foam seals are good too so you bnb don't fill the radiator with grass.
