TORO 120 DIES IN FORWARD OR REVERSE WITH OUT PTO ENGAGED PROBLEM JUST STARTED


Initial thought is carb problem. I would look at the choke being stuck first. If not then possible debris in it. I would suggest a rebuild and cleaning of the carb then.

I have a Toro 42 zero turn mower and the blades stop turning while mowing. The PTO switch knob melted. I replaced the PTO switch and the blades turned for 5 min. and then the PTO switch melted again.


Elertric blade drive clutches are a real pain when they go wrong
It sounds like a electrical short is causing the wires inside the switch to heat up beyond the safe melting point thereafter five mins the circuit gets between the fault gets broken as the switch fails the blades stop and the switch melts a bad eaRth corroded may cause this check the deck safety switches are not exposed e.g. they been damaged and the decks metal is shorting them out
a wire has been stripped of protective covering and is touching some metal shorting out something that vital to the blade controls operation the switch is getting a overload and subsequently melting your might need an lawnmower engineer to diagnose to the fault fully and repair

My pto is on all the time on my Toro zero turn. Blades are engaged when I start the engine even though the switch is in the off position? What would cause this?


Haven't had your particular problem, but my my blades would not turn when I pulled the PTO control knob. Turned out to be a bad PTO switch. Mechanic replaced the switch and it worked fine thereafter.

if its an elect pto then it sounds like its in the workings of the pto pully

also if its a manual lever that you move to engage the belt, it could be the pully that tightens up the belt and turns the blades, most of the pullies are greaseless and prettymuch throw away

Toro mower is blowing 30 amp fuse


Yes it is. It is an electro-magnetic device that 'grabs' your blade pulley, that normally free wheels, to turn your blades when there's power to it. Dwain
