    Goofy Hour Meter Back to the Future.

    It’s reading 7543 hours. It does way more than 1k. Large dial is tens, second dial is hundreds, smallest dial is thousands.

    I’d be willing to bet the little guy is a “heartbeat” for lack of a better term.

    I like it. It’s pretty cool. Much nicer, but harder to read than a typical “Hobbs” meter.

    Kid thought it read 746....after studing it for a while the 7543 seems to be right unfortuneatly.

    I think that little guy is a rotary heartbeat. It just spins to show you that it’s working.

    Just my guess.

    oookay...I'm a bit slow today.

    That makes perfect sense..We'll turn it on tomorrow and check that.

    My only hope is someone left the switch on for a long time and ran up the hours.

    I'm more fond of cable driven units.

    This tractor has NO tach which seems odd.

    I saw this thing and thought it was the tach but had no glasses with me. It resembles the early ford tach but lots smaller.

    Many Cub Cadet garden tractors in the 1970's had that style of hour meter,,,

    rtgt likes this.
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!
