Hour meter

The meter appears fully functional. The only issue I have is the wire routing. The spark plug is towards the front of the machine and the cable is too short and routing unclear, or inefficient.

Excellant Addition

This is a great addition to your mower. I thought it only tracked hours so I felt it was a little privey but I was wrong. It does hours, RPMs, time until oil change and time until lube. Well worth the money.

Bought first gen version back in April 2015 along with the 20 HP brush mower. Unit is great for RPM read-out, but failed to reset the very first instance the Lube Now indicator came on. Apparently I need to Lube Now every time I use the brush mower. Messages transcends time as well, has displayed same Lube Now message since 2015. Save your money and get a phone app to remind you on any maintenance needed.

A must have on any engine powered equipment. With th meter, you do not have to guess when to change the oil. I Say that oil and grease is cheaper than metal. I mounted it on the 625 trimmer mower. The only place to mount the meter was nest to the throttle. That spot worked great I would recommend this item.

Good investment to keep track of when to change oil and how long to do jobs. Still haven't figured out its power source, battery or what keeps it running.
Response from DR SupportThank you for your feedback on the Maintenance Meter. We also think that this optional accessory is must have for all DR® Power Equipment. It will keep track of hours used so that you know when it's time to change the oil, keeps track of the RPMs so that you know the machine is running in tip top condition and provides alerts for both. The meter is powered by an internal battery and the unit is sealed so that you don’t have to worry about moisture. Thank you for your business and for choosing DR® Power!

Only reason for a 4 vs a 5 rating is that this should at least be included on the top of the line models...no excuse for a high end machine w/o an hour meter except to squeeze a few more dollars.

The meter also includes a RPM gauge that is great for setting the throttle control to the appropriate engine speed for the type terrain conditions you are mowing on. Also, throttle control to reduce engine RPM for the load demand saves you fuel by reducing excess RPM.

It took just a few minutes to install the hour meter. Just pop out the rectangular plug in the "dashboard" of the DR Brush Mower, attach the sensing wire, run the wire down the right handle, wrap it around one of the sparkplug wires, zip tie it along the handle and the installation is done. This is the best way to keep track of running hours so maintenance - oil changes and greasing - can be done at the proper intervals.

Q.How do you reset the maintenance meter on stump grinder?
I changed oil and preformed maintenance but meter hasn't changed its alert. Instruction booklet doesn't explain.
A.The meter will flash for a 2 hour period and then automatically stop. It will do this at every 25 hour interval.

Q.How does this hour meter mount and how does it connect to the engine. I have a pro xl lawn vac with the Subaru engine.
A.The hour meter has a generic bracket that will slip under the head of a bolt. It can be mounted wherever there is a bolt long enough and in a convenient location. The sensor wire then gets wrapped around the spark plug wire and zip tied in place.

Q.Would this tach work on a 4 cylinder engine?
What would happen if you wrapped it around the coil wire of a 4 cylinder engine instead of just one plug wire? I have a Wheel horse D250 with a Renault 4 cylinder engine that I pull my DR lawn vacuum behind.
A.Thank you for your inquiry. It WILL work with a 4 cylinder engine. You would hook it up to 1 of the spark plugs and multiply the readout by 4 times to get an accurate read on the rpms. I hope this answers your question.

Q.how to install hour meter on 18hp dr mower
A.The AT3 model should have a cut out to place the Hour meter in. The wire should be run down the Handlebar and wrapped around 1 Spark plug about 5 times. Be careful routing the wire to avoid getting it near too much heat or anything that could cut it. The readout will be half of the RPMs since it is only wrapped around 1 plug.
