Had a brand new mower delivered today. How many hours on the meter would be expected on average?
It is HIGHLY likely that at some point in the setup or delivery, the key was simply left in the "on" position. If you do a search on the internet, you will find that many hour meters will log time if the machine is not running but the key has not been returned to the "off" position. Since the warranty on your unit is based on either years or hours of use, I would call the dealer and have them replace the hour meter with a new one or reset back to 0 if possible. If they are not willing to do this, at the very least they can update their records to reflect the hours at which the machine had at delivery so that you are allowed the full allotment of hours of use for the warranty.Just had a 2020 gravely ZT XL delivered and it had over 50 hours on the meter.
