No it does not have a posi. At least my 1997 does not. Roger

No, under equal traction both sides will drive. Under load the easiest wheel to spin will spin.

Still not posi (limited slip) There IS a diff-lock pedal though. (which actually locks the rear differential.)

Re: Does the 345 have a posi differential?

Seems pretty rare for any garden tractors to have an actual "posi" or limited slip differential. Typically they are either a standard open differential or have full locking capability (by pushing a pedal or switch). Maybe people are confusing posi and locking differential to be the same? Concept is similar with a "posi" only able to supply a certain percentage of power to one side (meaning under certain conditions you still get one wheel peel) where as a locking differential both sides are 100% locked together.
