This sounds like you have bent the shaft. This happens when you run over something hard. Hope this will help.

SOURCE: Toro mower 20016 makes grinding noise and no

sounds like ether the the wheel gears are stripped or you have a bad trans.Pick mower up a little and take the bolt out of the wheel. The wheel will come right off check the gear on the inside of the wheel to see if it is stripped or worn out if not then it is the trans which are pretty cheap go to toro.com and look it up

SOURCE: Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower

1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

I have a toro zero turn z4200 starts and runs fine but when I put arms in gear, it will not move forward or backward.


Make sure the drives are engaged. Under the seat and towards the rear are two thin metal levers with finger loops. These are used to disengage the drives in order to push the mower when the engine is off. Levers towards the back to engage.
Good luck

I bought a self propelled Toro mower and it is hard to pull backwards. I removed the plastic toe guard and that did not help. I also have a White "brand" self propelled and it is easy to pull backwards.


The self propel system uses a type of racheting pinion drive that sometimes gets greased up and wont release like it should.

You would need to remove the wheels and pinions and look at the shaft ends for a key, a ball and a spring. This is the "pawl" that locks the wheels going forward and rachets when the wheels go backwards.

Clean up the parts of all the aluminum colored grease and reoil with something lighter. 3 in 1 would do nicely. Reassemble.

Now the next time you start going backwards and it jams...just push the mower forwards slightly without engaging the drive and see if the unit doesnt free itself.

Good luck and be careful!

Drive doesn't disconnect when pulling the mower backwards...


Try letting go of the self-propelled lever a couple of feet prior to stopping, then try pulling back. Also, I had a Lawnboy that did this. There was a flap on the back of the mower that would curl up under the deck and actually push the transmission into gear when I pulled it backwards.

Mowing deck is disconnected.


Place a block of wood under the disconnected side and have someone use a pry bar to lift it while you put in new pins.

I have a toro lawn mower it is a little hard to go forward but does go. It doesnt go backwards at all. Can you help me! Joanne


Check the drive belt for flat spots. If it is ok then it is probably an internal transmission problem
