Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I replaced both belts on my Toro LX500 riding mower. Now when going downhill the braking system tries to engage but it won't hold the mower back. The mower will run freely out of control downhill and make a quickly repeating "ratcheting noise". What did I do wrong?
Do adjusting the nut on the tranny brake arm. Tightening it increases break pressure.
Reassemble it again.
Let me know

put grease on pulley and try...then friction is reduced

Drive belt should be tight - as the variable part is the spring on the pulley.
normal deflection for the belt should be about 1/4"

Is the drive belt tight?if it is not gight enough it will slip and let the mower run free but if its tight the gears wont let it spin faster than its going. if the belt is tight that means your gears are slipping and that can make a grinding noise also
