    They Should Come w/an Hr Meter.... My Toro Walks Do!

    But $54 is Too Much!...Try J-Thomas...I think like $20 if you buy 3-4?

    Fareway.....

    Why mount the Tach there? How can you see it when mowing?

    Wouldn't the wire reach?

    Hey TLS!...It's Probably Better than Mounting it Here.....Can you say Vibration!...I don't do oil changes or RPM adjustments While Mowing but in Operator View Would Probably Still be Better!

    My eyes are on my tach on a VERY regular basis. It makes me a better mower!

    I have that same meter on my Exmark and managed to mount it on the console without one wire showing anywhere. If you didn't know better you would think it was a factory option. I ran all the wires through the factory wiring harness and tucked the red sparkplug lead under the engine shroud. A little bit of the white ground wire is the only thing visable.

    we sell a hour meter at our shop for about $10 I thank it is. It does not tell RPMs only hours on the engine. Any one can wire it up. It runs on a watch battery and there is a wire you wrap around the plug wire. For $54, they can keep it.
