Customer Question

The hour meter on a used MX 4250 that we just bought shows 1038.2 hours. Trouble is the mower is near new only 6 months old and owner says about 20 hours use. It looks brand new too. Any clues?

Hourmeter runs when key is on. Maybe the key is not turning off and meter keeps running?
