  2. 522XI Hydraulic Issue

    Anything Hydraulic needs to warm up before using especially when its cold. I don't use the 523dxi in the winter but I always let it warm up before using. It's hard on the pump if the oil isn't warm.
  3. Stainless Wheel Lug Bolts?

    I would not use stainless bolts as they break very easily. They have almost the same strength as grade 2 bolts.
  4. 522xi snowblower repair

    From what I can see in the video it looks like the auger shaft is bent. It's kind of hard to tell with it spinning that fast. Might be easier to see at an idle.
  5. Tractor Choices less than 40hp with

    I think Sub compact would be eliminated by the post hole digger.
  6. It's back!

    Boot on the shifter.
  7. Happy Birthday to both of you!
  8. Fascinating ground engagement implement!

    We had this for the Dingo in 99 or 2000 I can't remember.
  9. Another What Is It

    A toggle chain but looks too short for a cow.
  10. Happy Birthday Denny!

    Thanks everyone - I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
  11. 523Dxi DM950D or DM850D Diesel Engine

    The original specs for the build called for the DM700D which was rated at 19.5 hp. The only thing done to the engine was the rpm's were limited by the governor. If I remember that is where the 23hp came in. It's not so much the horsepower as it is the torque with these engines and the most torque was usually in the middle of the curve. I can't insert an image of the torque chart but there is a pdf with a torque chart here rodscontracts.com/docs/DieselEngine/vanguard_3lc-3.pdf Just copy and paste the URL and it will download the pdf
  12. 523Dxi DM950D or DM850D Diesel Engine

    You are welcome. It will be fun to see some of the people I used to work with and the new product being developed. It's hard to believe its been16 years since I left Toro.
  13. 523Dxi DM950D or DM850D Diesel Engine

    The dxi model 73551 and 73550 was made in 1998 only. The dxi model 73552 was made in 1999 and 2000 only and model 73590 was made in 1999 thru 2004. After 1998 the engine was still Briggs & Stratton but became model # 522447-0106-E2. A friend of mine that I worked with at Toro is retiring and I'm going down to visit him on his last day. I will see if I can find an answer to production numbers while I'm there.
  14. Noisy 5xi Two Stage Blower

    Is the chain lubed and jack shaft bearings greased?
