Does anyone on here use the Toro spreader / sprayer ? If so, have you had any problems with a clicking sound in the transmission ?

I own two units one with over 900 hours and one with about 200 hours... the clicking noise comes from the rear wheels..... it’s a keyed shaft both units make the same noise.

Nothing to worr

Nothing to be concerned with.... keep everything greased.... replaced my first pump at 900 hrs.... it was still working but it was getting weak.

I got new tires, wasn’t much tread left, 65 acres a year, 5 times a year.... that’s my maintenance cost for 4 years.
I will have to replace my front tires shortly. They wore out prematurely because I had to replace the bolts that hold the steering assembly together. Also, I have had to replace the sprayer control valves because 2 of them were leaking so I replaced them all. With that being said I have been pretty happy will it overall. We have just recently bought a new spray truck 800 / 150 / 50 that will be doing the bulk of our spraying, but I have some large lawns that we will still be using the Toro on.
