    Be aware that if you go used, a Kubota hour meter just goes to 1,000 hrs. and then resets to zero, at least my M6040 does.

    Uhhh? That is not standard equipment on a Kubota that you have there, it's a defective hour meter, which is somewhat rare. Hour meter not working is fairly common, usually due to human intervention, but hour meters are designed so that it's difficult to manipulate the hours on them. It sounds like the last digit on your meter is stuck and rolls with the digit before it. Wait till Okie reads this,!

    MM, mine only has four digits (I think) and awhile back it rolled over to all zeros. Made me feel like I had a new tractor ! :) I could be wrong, as I don’t pay much attention to hour meters. Not being a farmer, I change oil and do other major service once a year, whether the hour meter says it’s needed or not.

    4 digits would take you to 9,999

    What @Buckly said. So it may be possible that what you thought is a low hours tractor has over 10k hours on it.
