Hours add up if you forget key on.

I am too forgetful to NOT keep records.

My Cub Cadet and Kubota tractors record engine hours. I like that. The Husqvarna MZ52 tracks PTO hours. I guess since it's a single function machine (mower only) that's OK.

Cool, guess I'm just used to keeping records for bike work I do, it just spilled over to my machines & projects etc..

Plus I forget stuff as well.

Got enough stuff to maintain now I can't keep track of what I did if it isn't written down

Another variation is RPM-dependent hours. My JD compact utility tractor counts hours at 3200 rpms, so if you run it at lower rpms (which is almost always for me) they add up slower than how long it was actually running.

Same with the Kubota L3000.

I kept records for awhile, switched to CDs and now my music is on the cloud! :confused2: :confused2: :confused2:

I have systems based on time for most things. No one is checking up on me, so I won't spend (waste?) the time for documentation. Kudos to y'all who make me look lackadaisical.

Wow, & maybe more yet ?
The combo tach/hour meter on the Kubota is definitely old school--cable driven off the injection pump, just like an old-time speedometer/odometer.
