Welcome to GTT :wave:

 

There are a few universal hour meters out there, they range in price depending how fancy you want them.

There are some that just count the hours and some that alert you at oil change intervals and show engine rpm's

 

If your interested just shoot me a PM for details.

Princess auto has one on sale right now for 20.00 but I don't know what shipping and duty would be to the US.

I am not that booked up on the newer Ariens. If they have a meter as an option, itmight be easieast to get a oem and just plug it in. If they don't have a dedicated plug in the wiring harness, any aftermarket meter will be about the same to wire up.

There are 2 basic types. The traditional electro mechanical and the electronic With LCD display.

The elctronic types I know of use a battery to keep the unit powered so it can remember the count. When the battery dies the count is lost. Battery may not be replaceable. What I like about these is they only count time when the engine is running. They also work on engines without a battery. Sensing is done with a few wraps of wire around a sparkplug wire.
