TORO Powershift 1132 slips out of reverse

I'm looking on craigslist and came across a Toro powershift 1132. The guy says it runs very good but slips out of reverse. I have yet to go look at it.

Is this an alright deal at $175?

My 6/24 powerShift has never stayed in reverse either. you have to hold it in reverse to use it.

Current machines-
1978 Bolens 8/24 (Loncin 420cc engine upgrade)
1986 toro powershift 6/24 ( 212cc Predator upgrade)
1988 Simplicity 860 (Predator 301cc upgrade)
1995 Honda HS 621

I think it's a good deal but it depends on how easy it is for you to fix the trans issue. Might only take an adjustment and you'd be good to go.

You should add a location to your profile so it pops up under your user name.

How about a photo or two from the ad. (If you're thinking of buying it I wouldn't post the ad's link)

Here's pictures of the beast. Going to pick it up after work. He said it just pops out of reverse from time to time. I don't mind holding the shifter if I have to. I really appreciate the replies. Thanks again.

You need to go get it now as that's the one I'm still considering too

Went and picked the 1132 up today. This thing is HUGE.

Goes in gear fine.

The auger runs continuously. I figure he put the wrong belt on the thing.

The Power Shift doesn't shift. I'm guessing I have to adjust the cable.

I'll wait until the temp gets above 40 to start messing with it.

Otherwise its pretty clean. I'll post pics later.

It sounds like the two problems of it not staying in reverse (it should as long as the machine is moving backwards) and it not coming out of powershift mode are related. You'll likely need to remove the control box and break it all down and thouroughly clean and lubricate it. I had the same issues with the 824 I rescued last winter.

Someone on here has a great PDF of the control box service manual that shows how to do everything. It's a bit intimidating at first, but actually really easy to do. Took me about an hour from open to close and another hour to R&R it from the dashboard.

Fleet Farm has good belts for the auger in the electric motor section. I just replaced mine this year because it started to diminish on how far it would throw snow. Around $8 and IIRC it was a 4L390.

That was a heck of a good deal

Might be PowerShift93 who has the PDF.

There are excellent manuals available for download from the Toro website.

First place I went after I picked up my 1332 earlier this month.
