Yea right,.... It took me a sum total of 17 minutes from start to finish and that included dropping the deck out from under the machine, as well as running it back and forth for a bit. It took longer to pour new fluid in than it did to remove the filters and drain the trany and resivoir. So now I hope its 200 hours until they are due again, and other than air cleaner and oil changes its work ready. I think the local dealership could see a fast buck being made......they have a sign that labor is $60 per hour. Somehow I just can't imagine any lawn and garden mechanic being worth that kind of money. Heck even an A & P mechanic don't get those kind of wages in this area. Probably the mechanic gets $6.00 and the parts man gets $10.00 for lying and sucking in a customer and the dealer gets the balance.
