Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

New battery won't take charge

I just reconditioned the mower. It starts first pull with rope, but I'm a 70-year old granny and the 6.5 hp is a bit much for me to use pull starter, so I need the electric start. Battery is brand new, connectors seem to be clean, pos and neg in proper positions. The charger adapter (in wall outlet) is not even warm to the touch, indicating to me that it's not taking the charge. Starter 'clicks' but won't turn engine over. I replaced the fuse, but second fuse may have been used and might be bad.
Mower is Model 20018 (2003) walk-behind with Tecumsah engine.

Hello, and how are you. It could possibly be the charger itself If everything else seems fine. If all wire connections at the starter and the battery are tight, clean and no cuts any where on the wires them selves.I would try a new charger. Another thing is you could see if someone could check the wires with a meter to see if there are any unnoticeable breaks in the wires.

I have a inteck briggs motor on a snapper 30inch mower it has a battery start and a pull rope start it has startd with 2 pulls as the battery is over a year old thts why i have been using the pull start....


test the battery
if it is under 12v as normal change it; 10v is one dead cell. 8v is two dead cells etc.
if it is not able to hold a charge the engine wont start even with the pull start due to electronics not firing at under 12v
that is probably why it starts with the charger hitting it with 14-18v

I have a 33 inch Snapper RE riding mower with a 14 HP Koehler engine. I had to store furniture in my garage so the lawn mower sat out in the rain. Now it won't start. It only makes a clicking noise and...


Whilst it was in for the solenoid did they change the spark plug? If not remove it and give it a good clean and check the gap at the end to ensure it is correct. It should tell you what it should be in the manual.
My old lawnmower is a nightmare to start so I try and warm it up before starting.

How to install pull rope on Craftsman 917.37717 lawn mower


First, this is best done with two people, unless you have 4 hands. Second, with rope pull cover off the mower and laying on table with rope pulley up so you can see it, remove all the old rope. Next, measure 8 foot of new rope.
Now, line up the holes where rope will go thru the cover and into pulley, now with someone holding the cover, rotate rope pulley 6 complete turns, now hold pulley there, while putting new rope thru the rope openings in rope pulley and outer cover. Tie knot on end by rope pulley and have who ever was holding cover and other end of rope, slowly release the rope so it rewinds, install rope handle and walla, your done. 5 minute job, depending on how much coffee you drink. Hope this helped you.

Lawn mower pull cord


This works best with two people. Remove cover and pull cord will be inside cover. If your handle on pull cord is attatched to a metal ring up on the handle, you will need 8 foot of new pull cord.
With all the old cord removed, wind cord pulley 6 revolunations, now, have someone hold the pulley, while you string the new cord thru pulley and out the cord hole on cover. Be sure to put a knot on the end going thru pulley. Draw cord all the way thru and out of the cover. Attatch the handle and let it rewind. You will have extra cord, this will be used up going from engine up the handle. I hope this helps

434 champion starter cable


If this is a normal push mower with a pull start remove the starter housing and inside you wil see the pulley that the rope is contained in. Get the pulley out and remove the old rope. Push the new rope in through a hole and double knot it. Reinstall the pulley and you should see a slot in the pulley that you can pull rope out to wind the spring.With the handle also on you should be able to wind the spring up to a desired tension. Hope this will help a bit. Donnyb60
