2020 Toro Titan, 24.5hp, does the hour meter run when blades on only? Or does the engine have to be full throttle for hour meter to move? Just spent 4 hours (3/4 throttle) pulling a spray trailer and hour meter has not moved. Any thoughts? [Linked Image]

They're pretty much all wired to run whenever the key is on, even if the engine is not running.

This ^^^^^^ I would look for the wire connections. If they are fine contact your dealer should be a warranty claim at that point.

My ferris is like that. They wired it to the pto, so the hour meter only runs when the blades are on. I guess too many idiots leave the key on with the engine off. I wired up a hobbs meter in addition to the regular one, so now I know total run time and blade run time. lol I have like 188hrs total on the engine and 113hrs that the blades have been spinning.
