SOURCE: toro self propelled mower will not move

This is a very simple solution, When you pull the lever it simply pushes a pulley into the belt to make it tight. Most of the time the belt has come off or maybe the cable broke. Turn the mower over and you will see the belt. My money is on the belt off.

If you take the wheels off and remove the belt from the small pulley on the the front axle underneath the pulley you should see a small transmission. You usually can split this unit in half . You will see two gears and sometimes one plastic and one metal. The plastic one is usually the culprit. Hope this will help you out. Donnyb60

SOURCE: toro 20073 self propeled, walk behind mower-how to replace belt ?

Wait until the mower cools off

1. Remove the drive belt cover from the top of the mower
2. Tip the mower up, being careful to not go too far or the oil and fuels may spill out
3. Remove the mower blade - as I recall the bolt is 5/8" (could be 9/16") You will have to hold the blade from turning (if you have impact tools, this will be much easier)
4. Remove the blade
5. Pull the pulley out or off and remove the belt - be careful to not lose the crankshaft "woodruff" key - it's the little piece of half/moon shaped metal that keeps the pulley from spinning on the crankshaft.
6. Reverse the steps to reinstall

You MUST make sure the blade is tight when you reinstall it. Also, the blade usually fits over a couple of pins - make sure they are lined up properly and the blade is installed right-side up.

Try taking the back wheels off and lubricating the joint cogs and wheels with ,say, 3 in 1 oil . The dealer recommended doing this once every couple of years as preventative maintenance when I bought mine , and it has solved sticking problems for me .

My toro 6.5hp 22" front drive mower does not dive


There is a transmission, a pinion gear connected to the belt end, and a larger bevel gear connected to the axle, all inside an aluminum shell, we could call it a basic transmission. On my Toro the bevel gear had flat spots on about a third of the teeth, hence it wasn't continuously driving the axle. A new pinion and bevel gear where found as a set on Ebay for $30 plus $5 shipping.

Also the plastic gears in each of the front wheels can wear out and you need new wheel assemblies, they cost about $15 apiece at Sears if you pick them up, $10 more if shipped. Take your old one in, they can match it.

I have a Toro Proline walk behind . Problems with the self propel


I suspect the drive belt, not the Hydro. Especially if the drive belt was never replaced. The belts are known to stretch and wear out over time. It's a cheap part.

I dont know how to change the self-propel belt on my toro model #20065 mower ....can anyone help me or direct me to a site that i may find help? thanks, sandy


The belt run between the crankshaft and the transmission. Pull the spark plug wire off, Take the plastic cover off the top of the deck; Look underneath the deck, you will see a bracket that keeps that protects the belt. it will have to be loosened. get the belt around the blade, loop it around the pulley under the deck, put it thru the hole to the front and loop it around the transmission pulley. put everything back together and your done.
Good Day.

I have 6.5 hp toro mower and the self propelled wheels quit working. I need to know how to fix it - THANKS


Not sure which model you have, but the rear wheel drive that I have, 20070, transmission goes out every year. Toro had a real bad design on that transmission and they know it. They made a change in 2009 models to try and eliminate the problem and also give a lifetime warranty on the transmission. Model years 2006 thru 2008 has a single bearing on a half shaft and the torque of the drive belt is too much for that single bearing. I am on my second replacement and had an extreme conversation with Customer Service. Go past the first level, "Sorry It's Out of Warranty" to supervision and let them know about their product and insist they repair it. This has been going on for a month for me but I think you have to push these manufacturers to do what is right.

Self-propelled feature runs slow and won't pull as it should!


Check the belt tension. There is a spring that holds the tension and connects the gearbox to the mower deck. If it has slipped off the belt will not be tightened properly.
Hope this helps.

Snow Thrower does not self-propel


Did you check under the handle area, near the blower itself for a transmission lever? This will engage & disengage the transmission.
