Is the question "How do hours on a tractor compare to miles on a vehicle"?
Here's my current thought process: a hundred hard hours brush hogging = 5,000 miles, a hundred hours in a parade (easy hours) = 1,000 miles..
My tractor's suggested oil change interval is 200 hours. it was built when oil changes were recommended every 2,000 miles, 100 hours = 1,000 miles. A car averages 45 MPH throughout it's lifetime, 100 hours = 4,500 miles.
You'll have to do the km conversion yourself, my operating system is to old to upgrade to metric scale
The farmers here in SA always mouns about the condition their tractors is in . The drivers missuse it and has no respect for it .
Then I have to tel them from another angle that its not the case . My explenation is as follow.
How far do you drive your car in a hour ? At what km s do you trade it ?
Then they see the hole picture !
Normaly the answer is 100km/62.5 miles x hours on the tractor = almost 1 000 000 km and they trade their car at 80 000km to 100 000km.
Then I softern that blow by saying ....let make it 60 km and that will bring us back to 600 000km......still far from their 100 000km for their car or pick-up .
