So I'll take my lumps if this is being posted in the wrong seciton.

I am looking at buying a used 2012 X740 Garden Tractor from a dealer. All the information I looked at on the site and emails exchanged with the sales person did not state that the hour meter did not work. After some time of going back and forth with questions I was ready to do the paperwork as the unit it self is a 3.5 hour drive for me. Today I find out the meter has not been reading. Does anyone know if there is another way to measure engine hour other than the meter? Is there a way to read the hours using the JD app possibly? I don't want to buy a nightmare. Or if anyone has any advice on things I might be able to do other than just walk away. Thanks Everyone.

:)

Nope. The only thing you might do is ask for any service records and maybe figure out when the hour meter quit working. Then extrapolate from there.

Thank You Mike. This is the exact quote... "As far as the hours, the customer purchased this unit from us with a work tachometer. He purchased it new from us I believe and we did the math of how much he mowed etc. and it came out to right around the 325 mark. I believe he had a small tiller on the back… no hard use.. says its in good condition.

Thought I would update those who replied if they are interested. I did not end up going with the x740 I was speaking of in my original post. Instead I was able to work out a different deal with the same sales person same store on a 2013 x750 with 960 hours. I got the unit this last Saturday 10-2-2021. It was a clean unit with normal wear and tear. Overall I am happy with the outcome!
