Question about Lawn Mowers

1 Answer

The right transmission on my Toro timecutter Z (16hp 42 in deck) overheats after about 30 minutes and will not engage until after it is allowed to cool for about an hour. Do I need to add oil? what weight oil? is a seal or o ring blown/worn. Thanks for the help, Mike

    Check with your Toro dealer about what oil to use. If you don't have a dealer close by then go to the local dealer that repairs profesional outdoor power equiptment. There is nothing worse than trying to purge the wrong oil from a hydro unit.

    You need to check the oil level right now. Normaly you would use gear oil sold at walmart but I do not know the type you need I would use 10w90.

    Take out the plug on the side and fill up to the plug.

The type of oil I would use would be fully synthetic motor oil, 5w 30. It is basically the same as hydraulic oil.

Timecutter PTO clutch switch clicks when I engage the switch but will not engage the belts

Check under the deck and make sure the blades can spin freely, there will be resistance but mostly check to see if they are stuck. If they are not and can move, yiu can try to remove the belt from the pto, engage and see if it spins then. If it does not than there is probably an issue with pto clutch

Toro cutting off

Maybe low oil level, all mowers have a low oil cutoff. 30w oil.
