Toro GTS 6.5 HP doesn't run well in grass. Any ideas?

I have a Toro GTS 6.5 HP with a Tecumseh engine. It starts easily and runs for as long as I keep it on the driveway. It only runs for about 5 minutes in the grass. It has a new spark plug, clean carburetor and jets, new air filter and recent oil change. The lawn is well maintained and should be an easy cut. Any ideas?

    It has new gas.

  • Rose Carncross Feb 17, 2012

    I do not find a fuel filter. The fuel line is only about 3 or 4 inches long and goes directly from the bottom of the gas tank to the carbutetor. The spark plug seems to be working well.

Has the fuel filter been replaced lately? Also you can look to see if the new spark plugs are getting fouled out still. Sometimes just replacing the spark plugs wont fix the problem.

SOURCE: Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run

I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

SOURCE: carburetor linkages for riding lawn mower

Go to a tecumseh website and get a breakdown of the parts list and that should help a bit. Good luck.

SOURCE: no gas to carb on toro gts

Carb needs to be cleaned/repaired. Without knowing model number of the engine, that's all the info I can give you.

Changed filter, oil, full of gas checked gas flow everything is good , when I start m lawn mower it runs , when I engage my pto and start mowing for about 5 minutes it just quits


if this is got the 27 hp kohler engine, I know exactly whats wrong with it , due to grass and engine oil building up in a short time under cylinder heads , it actually makes a tight ball of grass and stuff there !! this holds the engine heat and ruins the ign module that's just above it there , I put two on in one season ( tractor runs 6-10 hrs day 6 days a week ) I finally gave up I bought a Kawasaki 27 hp twin and installed it , now its run for two seasons and no problems
engaging the pto has nothing to do with it , it would cut off if you just drove it around for 15 minutes

Are you sure there is oil in the machine?
Are the Fins on the engine clean and not loaded up with sand and mud?

Sounds like it is running so hot that it is seizing.
