    Curious about hours.

    I am just wondering how many hours some folks have on these little tractors. I have seen a 2520 with 700 hours and I am sure some folks have more than that. I only have 20 on my 2520 so I have a long ways to go. Just curious .

    Going from memory here.

    2305 = 185 hrs = 2009 fall machine
    2520 = 335 hrs = 2008 spring machine

    I was told these little engines will not last near as long as the bigger units.
    My 1988 JD650 had over 1700 hours on it when I traded it and still ran fine.

    At the rate I'm going it shouldn't be an issue anyway.

    And who is spewing these "facts"? Do they have data to support it? Are you just trying to get us riled up?

    I don't remember who told me or when but it was a few years back. I do remember saying "I put over 1700 hours on my 650 before I traded" and, like you, didn't think it was worth the effort to worry about it. Had the 650 for 20 years. I also said, I figure I'll be dead, won't give a damn, or trade before I put 1700 hours on the 2320.

    A whole 5 hours on the 1026R...snowblowing season just has to be coming. So far the snow falling on DT is about the most I've seen this season!

    And how are they counted?

    As long as we're on the topic...

    My previous tractor had the hour counter calibrated to total engine rotations at 2200 RPM. So higher engine speeds would run up more than one dashboard hour per hour of use. Since the tractor spent a lot of time idling between parts of a job, I usually seemed to get about one meter hour per two hours of engine-on time.

    My new 1026R seems to be counting hours a lot quicker. It might be because I'm idling less, or because the idle speed is so very high. (Still wondering why they do that, where it wastes fuel so quickly.) But I also wonder if the RPM/hours conversion is different. Anyone here know?
