Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

2 Answers

Dual blade mower leaves uncut strips between blades.

Mower is a Toro Z4200 ZTR with a dual blade 42" deck. Bought new May 08. Have gone through deck leveling several times. Same results whether level or unlevel. Added a recycler kit thinking that may help but to no avail. Have not taken to the dealer yet. Would like to fix myself if possible.

Had same uneven mowing problem with new Toro Z4200 XTR mower. Problem was one side of the U-shaped rear deck hanger rod had popped out of its chassis mount (did hit something with mowing deck). Removed hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Put end of U-shaped rear deck hanger rod back in the chassis mount and remounted hanger chassis mount & its bolt. Z4200 now cuts lawn evenly again.

It sounds like you need to take the blades off and put a new edge on them which is easy with a bench grinder

How do you hold the blades on a toro LX460 while breaking the nut loose to change them


Use a piece of 2x4 and a clamp. Clamp the wood to the inside of the deck using the clamp. When the blade comes around and bumps against the wood it should act as a stop. Or you could rig something with a Vise-Grip plier. Lock onto the blade with the Vise-Grip, run a piece of rope from the pliers to a point on the mower where it will stop the blade from turning.

Toro 1991 42 inch mower doesnt cut even how do i


The blades should be a simple bolt on, how ever there are no adjustments at the blade. Your adjustments are on the swing brackets that raise and lower the deck.

Install belt on toro mower model 70041


For removing/replacing the deck belt, the general method is:
  1. turn off engine, remove key and set parking brake
  2. disengage blade by putting blade engage lever into off (disengaged) position
  3. lower the cutting deck to the lowest position (closest to the ground)
  4. relieve the belt tension (depending on the model, use a 3/8 inch ratchet set to tighten in the square hole of the idler bracket)
  5. remove and replace the belt
NOTE: it's not necessary to completely remove the cutting deck.

If the transmission drive belt needs to be replaced, several components must be removed and special tools (i.e. air/impact wrench) used in order to change the tractor's transmission drive belt. See an Authorized Toro Service Dealer to have your drive belt replaced.

Replacement blade position.


The blades have such a close tolerance tip to tip on a V belt deck that it makes no difference where they are positioned, On a 3 blade deck the center spindle is forward of the two outer spindles. So for that reason you still get a quality cut. Most all commercial units use a V belt and have a good quality cut.
Some john deere mowers have a timing belt with cogs like a car and their blades have to be in time
90 degrees perpindicular to each other and locked down and if you strike something then the timing will be off and your back working on your mower instead of cutting grass,and the belts are twice as expensive than a v belt.

Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.


Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry
