What is the service life on those before rebuild?

Apparently not as long as they claimed.
They were boasting 300 hrs when they first came out.

Things feel like they may to be coming up a bit short of the original "brochure" but I havent seen any real data yet to stand on that, and would not go out on a limb making a proclamation as I just dont know.

It's been a success in that Merc sell a ton of them (Im happy for Merc) but I am unable to discern if the implied ownership promises have been fulfilled.

This is one of the few places in the world where guys that own them may hang out- I'm eager to hear their input.

How many hours are the customers getting out of their motors before they need to be rebuilt?

Hi Rick. We havenít had a QC4v 1100 or 1350 in for a refresh yet. The time varies, depending on use and application.
