Hello all!


I am curious to know what type of hours people have on thier trucks vs. the accumulated mileage. Its interesting to see what the average speed has been as well.


49,150 Km (30,718 miles)


727 Hours


Avg speed: 67.6 Km/hr and I don't do a lot of idleing or stop and go driving either.

37500 miles in 1500 hours or 25 mph. I think that matches your avitar.

Turfmower, that's pretty strange - your components are calculating some kind of "engine wear hours" based on rpm? Every hour meter that I've ever seen is a "clock" that counts the number of hours of switched-on 12v (or 6v or 24v) power. I couldn't find a comfirmation in the tech manuals, but I'd bet that the DMax hour meter is an actual ignition-on clock.

Both of my desiel tractors the hour meter is run off tac so the faster you run the engine the faster the clock runs. Edited by: Turfmower

Our older John Deere tractors hour meters are based on rpm but our newer ones are an actual calculation of time. I'm guessing this is the same situation in these trucks.
