Toro PowerMax Alphabet Soup ???

Just wondering what the various model 'letters' in the PowerMax series signify? I see various models

LE
OE
OX
OXE
OHXE

The base models over the years seem to be LE or OX

Not sure what the difference is between the various models . . . and then there is of course the engine/bucket nomenclature ( ex 826 or 1028 ) that's easy to figure out. The lettering . . . not so much.

Appreciate any help from the Toro experts here on SFB. Thanks.

Regards, Ted

I think that the "H" signifies a model with hand warmers. The "X" means some form of steering, (guessing here on this one). The "E" probably means electric start.

H is heated handles, e is only for electic start, x is steering. They don't have a symbol for hd or head lamp.

Don't forget "t.e" also (cant write t next to e or it spell checks it to "the"!)

I believe the T is for Two Stroke
