    i just picked mine up on monday and either i'm missing it or it doesnt have an hour meter. i figured for 6200, the least they could do is add an hour meter. do they not come standard? thanks.

    it seems like when i was demoing there that almost all of them had one on them. maybe you gotta ask for it. who knows. anyway, does anyone know where to get one? i know the sendek (sp?) i think arent that reliable.

    I buy a new TTHP every couple of years. It doesn't leave the dealership without an hour meter on it. I make my deal and make sure they throw in an hour meter. The last couple of hour meters have been Briggs&Stratton. Seem to work fine.

    i could have swore the one i demoed had a meter on it. i just thought they all did. i guess i need to contact my dealer and have them put one on.

    Most of the ones that I have seen/used I thought there was one on them.

    Take it back to the dealer and tell them they forgot the hour meter! No big deal.

    The only walkbehind in the eXmark line to come factory with an hour meter, is the Turf Tracer. You will have to buy aftermarket.

    Mine didn't come with an hour meter either, I guess they just don't come with one. I ended up buying a digital one from a marine place for $50. I'm glad I did, makes regular maintenance routine.
