    New here. But like most of my like minded forum friends - we love our mods to the things we love! Here are a couple of my simple ones to get things started:

    This is a 12 volt LED light that is super powerful for it's size. Need it for the snow thrower (the last pic is the switch):

    Here's another. Vibration activated hour meters for maintenance intervals. One on the 835 and one on the mower deck:

    There. I just exposed my "analness" towards service.

    Did the same thing with the light. I just replaced my key switch(worn out) with a handle bar mounted on/off toggle and push button start. (No kids around, no real safety concerns) Where do you get the hour meters and about how much? All my seasonal equipment gets serviced at the start of the season-need to do that now-- but my BCS runs year round so knowing the hrs would be nice.

    I got them at Amazon. Just search "vibration activated hour meters". I think they were $18.99.

    Try this link: Amazon.com: Vibration Activated Hour Meter No Power Required Use for Trailers Motors Equipment Machinery: Sports & Outdoors

    Hi Dave

    Thank you for sharing your mods with us!

    I was especially impressed to see that there is such a useful toy around as an hour meter, and one that is so easy to install.

    Searching the internet, I found this US product, which is on top also a tachometer!

    Hardline Products - Hour/Tach Meter 2cylinder or less gasoline engine

    I have installed it on my BCS 740 a few days ago and went on to mow my lawn straight away, and it works perfectly

    As I only use my tractor in the front-PTO mode with mower and sweeper, I have mounted the meter on the bumper guard, where I can easily see it when I'm driving. It shows the total hours accumulated when the engine is stopped, and the RPM when the engine is running. The photos below show the engine running at fast idle.

    Best regards

    Jens

    I would have liked the RPM as well but because my 853 is a diesel that is not an option (no spark plug wire).

    Installed an Exide AGM battery (FP-AGM51R). Stock battery died in less that a year. This prompted a cable upgrade (6 AWG) due to the SAE posts on the battery.

    Here's a fix, just be sure to order the right transducer size. I've been using mine on my BX2200 for at least 10 yrs. and still works fine.

    My 853 has the Kohler diesel and is a little heavy for the 33" Zannon mower deck. This is a powder coated angle iron to counter balance (you have to look close!).
