I get the uint of the returned object as hex with ethers.utils.arrayify() function

CONTRACT.totalRecords().then( _num => { 
   console.log("TOTAL_RECORDS ");  
   console.log( ethers.utils.arrayify( _num._hex )[0] ); 
});

The _hex is an internal value, and toString() should be available for you.

-CONTRACT.totalRecords().then( _num => { console.log("TOTAL_RECORDS " + _num); });
+CONTRACT.totalRecords().then( _num => { console.log("TOTAL_RECORDS " + _num.toString()); });
