I have a toro lawn mower it is a little hard to go forward but does go. It doesnt go backwards at all. Can you help me! Joanne

Check the drive belt for flat spots. If it is ok then it is probably an internal transmission problem

Hydrostatic mower goes in reverse but not forward. Only 73 hrs on it!
