Everyday uses at home or on the job. Wood chipper? Compactor on new asphalt during summer? Tunnel boring machine.....I'm thinking hot weather, heavily loaded, dusty, continuous use like a bulldozer/grader/tractor scraper.

I don't know, unlimited cooling water, usually fixed loads while cruising through a standard medium, water. True the salt water is tough on the metals but it takes many years to cause actual harm if maintenance is maintained.

Any ICE operating above 66.5° latitude qualifies.

My vote is the car/truck only driven a mile or two, esp. in winter, and never fully warmed up. My late MIL had a Cavalier that she only drove back & forth to work, never got fully warmed up, it knocked the cam locating dowel off the camshaft several times (guessing due to poor lubrication). Add to that the sludge that seems to form when an engine is always used cold, that equals trouble.

And that would be because many employees misuse the equipment and it often ends up with the incorrect fuel. There are many seized two cycle blowers, trimmers and chainsaws that die a quick death from using the incorrect fuel or fuel mixture.

I'm thinking more daily or continuous use. Hot,dusty,worked hard. cold weather applies on ly until the rigs are working and oil warms up imo. Rocket e gines and top fuel engines fall outside the parameters of everyday use.

Back in the Cold War, early dodge hemi V8s sat atop buildings to power air raid sirens. They'd start up cold and go full bore for a few minutes then shut down.

Well, you did say "on the job" and both Top Fuel and Rocket engines are used in what are legitimately called jobs.

I think there is an image of Buzz Aldrin's expenses reimbursement request for this trip the moon.
