I have a 1991 9500 and my engine/separator hour meter has quit working. JD has sent it out and it has come back that they can not fix it. Is there any way the machine keeps hours other than the meters? I want to trade it in next season but its hard to sell a combine with unknown hours.

Our '92 9500 already had the same thing when we bought it. The previous owner had to fit a new cornerpost monitor I believe, and the hours started counting again from zero. We just have to remember to add on 250 hours (or so we were told) to what it says.

If you have a well documented service history, it shouldn't be too hard to back up your estimation of the hours when it comes time to sell.

I didn't know that it was possible to reprogram the hour numbers - I guess that's a well guarded JD tech secret? Obvously our local tech's don't know it either!

My best guess is no, had one that did similar a few years ago and that’s what I found for a answer. But good luck!

If your dealer has done service on this combine, you should have repair orders/etc with hours & dates that you could use to back up your estimated hours. I assume the dealer sent it in to Ag-Express, only place I know of that may repair it.

Dear Jeff,
You have what use to be called a PM from me, now called a conversation.
The only notification available now is a Mickey Mouse dot on your icon of yourself, very easy to miss.
Use to have email notification, that was too good.

At 29 years old it'll probably cost more to figure out the hours then you'll gain in value.
