    X320 Hour Meter

    Well, I bought my first John Deere yesterday from my brother in law-a 2006 X320. He isn't the sharpest pencil in the pack and he left the key on for a few weeks so the hour meter now reads 998.8 hours on it. Is there any way I can turn the meter back to about 50, which the mower has. It has sat in a shed for 4 years and not even run at all. Thanks in advance!! Rick

    Just do what your brother in law did. Leave the key on till the hour meter flips around back to about 50 hour mark.
    Just a shot in the dark some body on the forum may have a better idea.

    You can't turn them back, but you can buy a new one and run it up to 50 hours by powering it.

    Thumbs up Welcome to GTT!

    A new hour meter is cheap. Kenny's advice is spot on. I would power it up not installed on the tractor cause I don't know what else would be on. A battery charger and some wire will accomplish this task easily.
