Looking at my PowerMax 826 manual at Toro.com I see they point out a little hole slot on the left side of the machine which has a tiny bit of a rod sticking out of it. They say the rod should be adjusted so that it sits back from the forward end of the slot opening by a 1/16 inch approx.

So I go out and look at my machine, ...no slot to be seen.

When I first got the new machine this year the belts were a bit squealy until the traction was engaged so I adjusted the traction wire a lit bit tauter and squeal went away. This is why I had a look at the manual and came across this traction rod slot information.

Only HD models have the slot.
My 1028 PowerMax has the slot, but i didn't realize it is an HD. It doesn't have an axle clutch/brake, which I thought was on the HDs. Or, did they change on the newer models ?

When the powermax first came out they only made the big frame / hd. They didnt start using the hd name till later when they had the small frame ones come out. The x in the model name is if it has a steering control they have to call the big frame hd now because they have the same name in both lines 826 oxe.

Cool - when I re-sell it, I will advertise is as a Heavy Duty, and bump the price up $200.

I cut you in for $100...if I really get $200 extra.

Thanks...again.
