Problems with the Wright Stander hour meter.

I was wondering if there is a way to turn back the hours on the meter...One of the employees left the key on and put an extra 30 hours on my mower.

They make them not to roll back for a reason. Cost of having employee's I guess.

I think it happens to everyone at one time or another. We had one that was left on over the weekend once but its not a huge deal, 50 or so more hours really isn't going to matter at re-sale time.

funny you ask, they do make them not able to rewind for the reasons of trying to do exactly that. we have had the same thing happen on several occasions, and noted the hours logged so for resale we can let someone know this if it even matters. by the time we are done with a mower it doesnt really matter anyhow
