SOURCE: how do I replace the belt on my toro model 20334

You will have to disconnect the deck from the tractor. There might be some rods hanging down by the pulley on the motor. You have to loosen those not remove. Then install the new belt with the inside of belt (V) into the pulleys. The outside of belt (flat side) goes up against any idlers (oversized pulleys). Once you get the belt routed properly the belt will be snug in the pulleys. If you have excess play you have to use trial and error to get the belt routed the right way around the idlers.
Once belt is on reattach the deck and tighten the rods by the motor that keeps the belt from comming off. They need to be close but not touching the engine pulley.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.

How is the traction cable adjusted on Toro Model 20027, Serial # 20005663. I'm replacing the cable and the new one is slightly different from the old one, but the Toro shop tells me it's the proper...

There is a large black plastic nut at the end where the cable attaches to the mower transmission. Turning it clockwise tightens the cable (engaging traction bar is tighter) and counter-clockwise is loosening the drive. If the cable is a little too long, you have to tighten it more.

I have ordered and received a new traction cable for my Toro Recycler Lawn Mower. However, no instructions. How do I attach this cable so that the mower is once again self propelled?

That can be a tough one the cable that houses the throat cable is the secret to make it work. Look at your old cable and make sure it is in stalled in the same position and work backwards until it works . If the cable is not adjusted right you can not get full power.

My Toro self-propelled lawn mower, the right wheel has locked up.

I'll bet the wheel needs to come off, then get cleaned and lubricated. Either that, or a stick or stone has lodged between the wheel and raising/lowering mechanism. Since the mower is a rear-wheel drive, the traction belt/gears are not the problem.

How do you replace a drive cable on a toro recycler 6.5 hp.

Its a bit of a pain - but with ordinary tools, it can be done. Get the replacement cable first. You can see how the bottom spring wraps around the cable with a universal joint sort of arrangement. Remove the belt protector (three screws from the top deck; if you have a battery compartment, that will temporarily need to go. Release the old cable from the top and middle attachment points, then unhook the spring from the traction lever. You might need to destroy the old cable lock to the mower deck to remove the old cable. Remove the plastic cup next to the cable where it exits the mower deck. Replace parts in this order: New spring/cable to the traction lever, snap in plastic interface to mower deck, small plastic cup top cable attachment, then middle attachment. You might need to move the middle attachment after you give it a test run. Replace belt cover and battery compartment if necessary. A lot of steps but, except for a difficult fit to get the spring hooked up, nothing is really difficult. I paid about $30 for the replacement cable from a local dealer; Overpriced, but I wanted to get the job done today.

Replace the cable traction (part #105-1844)

I just replaced mine and it was a little difficult and took me roughly an hour to do. First, download the walk behind power mover drive systems at

While they do not specifically address replacing the cable, you can find out how they do it when replacing the drive belt. As I said, it took me about an hour and I just about had to remove the transmission and rear drive assembly in order to unhook the original cable. Good luck!

The black cover on the front of the mower is held on by 2 screws from underneth, remove the cover and that will give you acess to where the cable connects to.then you can use a pair of pliers to squeeze the end of the cable to disconnect it from it's mounting hole.
