Whisteling noise, Toro Z150 2003 Help!

Just noticed a loud metallic whistle, It seems to start after the machine is warmed up, and rolling, can't pin point it, it isn't coming from the wheels, I don't think. It is there with the pto engaged or not engaged. Very noticable at low RPM when rolling down a drive way.
Any input or advice is appreciated.
And yes, everything has been greased properly and the belts are less than 15 hours.

I'm not Familiar with this unit either, But I've seen similar symptoms and found a bearing going bad in the electric P.T.O. clutch once warmed up and a idler pulley a couple times. For what its worth

Thanks for the suggestions, I played around with the hand brake to day and it seemed to have a connection to the squealing, 2 year warranty expired in April, I should not have put it off.

If yall think of anything else let me know.
