Are these the hour meters to get from Northern Tool for the GT5000?

Analog $24.99
Digital 36.99

Which is better? Is the tach on the digital worth the extra cost?

Any pictures of where you mounted yours?


Thanks!

I'd have to go with the analog. I don't recall having a need for a tach on my GT5000.

Anyone use the digital SenDEC one from Sears? Does it fit the OEM dash hole like the ones from Northern Tools do? My local sears has them in stock. It's a little cheaper that the Nothern Tools analog one after paying shipping.

Thanks for any info!

I've got more hours on my GT5K than on my JD 4410 and the GT5K has had fewer break downs. None for the GT5K and 1 for the 4410.

:eek:mg: :eek:mg: :eek:mg:

Did I just say that?

Yeah, I think the one my local Sears has is also surface mount. I guess I'll order the one from Northern Tools. I was just hoping I could find one locally because the GT5000 I ordered today is being delivered Friday and I know I will want to use it Saturday. I was hoping to have the hourmeter to install before I even use it.

Oh well...

Sorry to ask so many questions about this but I don't have my tractor yet and I was wanting to go ahead and order the hour meter...

Anyway, This hour meter from Northern Tools looks more like the one on the GT6000 tractor (at least from what I remember):

#160589


Is this the one that I've read about being a perfect fit on the GT5000? Or is it the one previously posted?



Thanks!

Noooooo, the round meter will not fit hole in GT dash. The first post with the analog "square" meter is the one that I have that will fit in the dash hole. All thats needed is to hook up two wires, mount with screws included with meter, and cut plastic dash plate around. Thats the tricky part, trying to get tight fit and looking right. I did use a couple small washers behing the meter brackets to space it forward just a hair. Just sitting it in the hole puts the face just even with or slightly behind dash plate.

Sweet! Exactly what I was looking for Randy! It's true, a picture IS worth 1,000 words!
