    Indicator light for MFWD

    We've had our 1025R for less than a week, and I just happened to notice that there is no indicator light lit up when I engage the MFWD. My 3520 has one, not so the 1 series, or is mine malfunctioning?

    Nope, 1 series doesn't have an indicator light for MFWD. At first I was quite disappointed with that but I've actually gotten used to it.

    Really !....For that kinda change they charge, you think they could have stuck a 50 cent indicator light in the dash. Cheapo bean counters.

    OK....so when I first turn the key on..all the available indicator lights turn on like a christmas tree in the dashboard. On the left side there is a green icon of what looks like a wagon or something...? Didn't have my glasses on....duh...what is that indicator for?

    It might have been the PTO indicator (E).

    He's talking about L which looks like a wagon. It lights up but isn't used

    Now thats an upgrade challenge! I'll have to check - dont think there's any electrical change that signifies coupling the MFWD would have to wire a lever microswitch to the linkage with your own indicator??

    If you are on pavement, it will be stiff in turning and you'll leave dark tire marks when you try to turn. If you are on turf, you'll tear up the turf. There's your indicators.

    Managed to snap a pic of the fleeting mysterious green wagon icon. So...what on earth was it meant for?
