    I'm looking for a good hour meter/tach. Anyone use ENM hour meters/tach? How do these things hold up? This is the one I am considering model PT14R, the second from the top.

    I had one on one of my mowers and I liked it a lot untill moisture got into it and shorted it out. I have an open trailer and I also power wash my equipment often which most likely did it in. Just be more carefull than I

    we use te maintence meter by Sendec, they are an hour meter when the engine is not running, and it's a tach when the engine is running, and still tallying the hours. Resonable priced too.

    I use TinyTach. These are original equipment on many owers including Dixie Chopper. These are also the same meters that are branded by Kohler engines and sold as such.


    The display on these meters does not bleach out (go blank) after a while in the sun like the Sendecs do.

    I have PT-14's mounted on my Exmark 36" WB, A BillyGoat and a Husqvarna Power Washer. I decided to go with the ENM brand because you can set the maintenance interval reminder to any number of hours you want. I've had them for over a year now and no problem. Ask about a quantity discount.

    Can you put an hour meter on a 21" self-propelled mower?

    Yes...alot of them just require you to coil a wire around the spark plug wire.
