We have been looking at a used 9650 walker. The machine has 410 hrs showing and is four years old. Compared to our 9600, it seems to be showing lots of wear for the amount of hours. Is there any way that somebody could have screwed with the hour meter.

the corner post mother board can be replaced and the hours have to be put in when it is installed, then you have 5 hrs before it is burnt in and can't be changed. gl

The original hour meter could have been taken out, and replaced with a new one (showing zero hours to begin with). Do not automatically think that someone did this to "trick you", though. My 9600's display, which includes the hour meter, is messed up and I need to replace it. I hate to, though, just because of the conception that you have about the 9650.

There should be several other controlers on board to find the actual hrs , like greenstar display, eo1 , eo2 etc. cross reference these and have the dealer run the serial no. for a history of the combine.

So anybody could have changed out the mother board and had a JD Tech reprogram it? or could of a sensor somewhere on the combine been unhooked?

Yes, anybody can buy a new corner post main board and then has to put in the desired hours. I have done it myself.
There is no sensor on the combine for counting hours.
The engine controller should also count the engine hours, but it would require a laptop hookup to read it, I guess.

The cornerpost is the only controller on the combine where hours are stored. You can check them internally at C03 address 124 and 125 for engine and separator.
