Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

3 Answers

Self propell toro mower will not "self propell."

I have a toro mower for little over a year now and it no longer self propells as it should. I am not sure where to start in tacking this issue other than calling professionals to work on it.

    My self propelled lawnmower is about a year old... the lever has a wire that goes into a sheath down to the housing. Now that wire is very loose and I can't find anything to attach it to. The clamp for the sheath does no good because the wire is so slack. Thanks for any help you can give.

    My Toro is front wheel propelled. When I pull the lever to engage it, the belt does get tight but the wheels sometimes turn or not. I tried lowering the cable, didn't do much. Gear and inside of wheels look O.K. There is much slack in the cable. If I try to get the slack out, the wheels freeze and do not move at all. Occasionally it tries to turn, but slowly. Help!

My toro self propelled lawn mower won't roll backwards... the wheels are locked up


My Toro Pace Master self propelled 22" 6.75 mower will not move by itself. I can push the mower and cut. It does start with no problem. I have a cable on left side of the mower that extends to the top of the handle broken off at the top of the mower and is loose. Is there a way to check to see if this is why it will not self propel. It attaches to the push handle that does I push down to propel the mower. Any suggestions?

Try taking the back wheels off and lubricating the joint cogs and wheels with ,say, 3 in 1 oil . The dealer recommended doing this once every couple of years as preventative maintenance when I bought mine , and it has solved sticking problems for me .

Self-propelled feature does not work at all! Any suggestions?


You might have a broken belt to the self propelled or a broken spring or whatever engages the self propel. Take off the cover and see if anything is broken or missing. Have someone engage the self propel while you are watching and see what is going on.

6.5 toro walk behind self propell b&s engine. self propel does not work


Try adjusting your self propel cable. A slight extension of the cable (1/4 inch) will double speed, so do a little at a time. Take the back guard off and clean debris 2 or 3 screws and it is just a cover so nothing will pop out unless that is your real problem. You should have grease fittings behind rear wheels so squirt 2 times with grease gun in each wheel and 1 squirt every 3rd mow.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
