    I prep my equipment the night before work so everything is fueled up, oil checked and string trimmer inserts wound up with string.Last Friday I did my usual stuff but, left the key in the ignition open. On Monday I take off and get to my account to find a dead battery and 68hours added to my meter. Is there anything I can do to erase the 68hours? .No frigging cables to jump either, so I opted to drive to advance and the clerk there let me borrow a bat while he charged mine so I could get some work done. Man That just wrecked my day.

    You can disconect the meter for approximately that many hours on most ZTR's.

    Don't let it bother you. Eventually everyone does it, much worse could happen!

    Buy a snapper pro. It only adds hours when the pto is on and the blades are turning

    Or a Turf Tracer, no hours unless the engine is running.
