Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

Open Question

Hard start and sometime stalls while engaging blade

My toro personal pace SR4 model 20056 has been in and out of the dealership three times in the past 2 years for the exact same promblem. I have the same dealership (where I purchased the mower) service the mower prior to every season. The mower is only 4 years old.
The problem is that when I can get it started it might run OK for a while but it will then start to run sluggish. Sometimes when i try to engage the blade it will actually stall out and then I will have an even harder time getting it started again. While trying to restart the mower I often have to use the primer more to keep it from stalling. I'm really getting tired of the same problem year after year. If you have any suggestions I would be greatful. I do really love this mower, but enough is enough.
During the Winter, the fuel was completely drained.

    Thanks for the carb tip. I think I'll have to try this because the gas was fresh from the the station up the road a week earlier (87%). I never leave the gas sitting through the winter or even a couple months for that matter. Thanks again, I really appreciate the time and effort. Have a great Summer.

SOURCE: When engaging the deck mower

have you removed the sediment bowl located on the bottom of the carburetor and looked to see if there is a lot of dirt and gunk in the bowl,then while this bowl is off there will be a float (metal or plastic) make sure theres a good supply of gas running out of here where the bowl would normally be,if not,then it could be a plugged needle seat or port in your carb and will need to be cleaned

Toro personal pace mower will not stay started?


If ir starts and runs for only a few seconds it's a dirty carb/bad gas. Drain the fuel system and use FRESH gas; change out your fuel supply monthly to avoid "phase separation" issues. If it runs for several minutes and then dies it is possibly a sticking valve. Do a compression check cold and after it stalls to confirm. Hope this helps

Toro Personal Pace sounds like it is running at half power


got oil in it, or do you add oil. Left outside alot, fuel line clogged. Is the gas old. Check the blades and the exit portion of the clippings. Does it have a drive train for ease of moving. those can bog down a mower. good luck

How do you replace the belt


this is not easy you have to turn the mower on its side <make sure the carb is down > take off the blade belt guide and look at it the space is really tight and you have to hold the trans with two fingers and then walk the belt on. its hard because the trans is spring loaded to twist backwards to keep the belt tight
