    anybody have any problems with track dingo shafts breaking. I have a tx425 love the machine but have broken 3 shafts off on drive motors, at $1,000 each over last two years.

    Check the post titled Toro Dingo from a few days ago; lakehomenursery's reply mentions a similar problem.

    sounds like you may be overworking tha machine.

    we have 750 hrs on ours and have had no problems whatsoever.
    you would have to have a lot of force on those shafts to break them...
