    Whats the story with the xi series?

    The 5xi series tractors were assembled in Windom Mn from Toro parts.I would have to do some checking but it would not be cost effective to move an assembly line and train them.

    Whats the story with the xi series?

    The 5xi's were only made by Toro.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I think Sub compact would be eliminated by the post hole digger.

    Fascinating ground engagement implement!

    We had this for the Dingo in 99 or 2000 I can't remember.

    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

    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.
