25,000 hours I've been told by Yanmar mechanics.
Mines at 6500 and is fine.
Had to do a few things. The only big one was a reconditioning of the Heat Exchanger. Apart from that its oil changes and filters.
Like cars when they hit 100,000 miles (or KMs) you need tolook after them
but they go on and on.
Look at diesel trucks that do interstate run for decades....
