Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
My Toro mower is 7 yrs old. 3 speeds, blade clutch. When going thru tall grass (3" cut), the blade slows down and will stop turning even moving forward on slowest speed. I have to stop and lift the mower's front wheels and allow the blade to resume its speed. This mower used to be able to cut the same 3" of grass in the rain without slowing down! Something is wrong.
I've noticed that when the blade get dull it work harder a cutting tall grass. I just put a new blade on mine and now it runs and sounds like a brand new mower. also if the inside of the deck is coated with old grass that makes a differance too

Some self-propelled mowers include a speed control, but sometimes it may seem that no matter how you adjust it, the mower just creeps along at a snail's pace. Most likely this isn't a mechanical malfunction, but an adjustment is probably needed.
Very tall or thick grass can bog down a self-propelled mower, but adjusting the height of the blade may allow it to roll through and cut the grass at normal speeds. If the blade is low, the amount of cutting required may slow down the movement of the entire mower. The frame of the mower may also stick in the high grass. Raise the blade little by little until the mower rolls at the appropriate speed. Going up hills may cause a similar response.
