Question about Toro Garden

1 Answer

Toro 74325 drives very slow in both forward and reverse when the blades are engaged as well as when they are not. I check belts and pulleys and all seem fine. Could this be the Hydro gear fluid?

Sounds like the belt tension is too loose. Check and tight it
more.


Good luck

Check drive belt. has it come off the pulleys or is it broken. They do those things once in a while. Check for broken shear pins in the pulleys as well

Why would a riding mower have the blade turning slow?


If speed varies depending on how much grass you are cutting, look for loose or badly worn belt. If constant slow speed when engine is running at full noise can only be a slipping on pulley or clutch. Most likely clutch. Normally slipping generates much heat so look to your clutch or pulleys. If drive key has separated there will be damage to shaft with metal dust showing.

No forward/reverse motion


This sounds like you have a bad bearing in one of the blade hubs or idler pulleys. Check by turning each pulley by hand and see if it turns easily. Go around all the pulleys and blade hubs(where the blades mount) and check for ruff spots while turning, and that they all turn freely. Do this without the blade engaged, this will allow them to turn somewhat freely.

Can you tighten the belt that engages the blade?


check for a spring loaded idler pulley that keeps tension on the belt out of place.

Mower starts but drives very slow or not at all, but fine in reverse.


If this is a hydro unit and it drives fine in reverse then there is no reason why it will not do the same in forward, there is a variable swash plate in the unit to change from reverse to forward, i would be looking at the linkages, if there is not enough movement it will greatly affect speed, check also that the pulley on top of the hydro is tigh and has not stripped the splines.

We have Toro Lwa 100 Lawn Mower Model #26623. Power engaged, start mowing but lawn mower will not cut grass. You have to stop and let it rev up again to cut more grass.


This 1991-92 model is equipped with a blade brake clutch. When the blade slows down this means the belt is slipping. This slipping can be caused from a few different things.
1 --A loose cable. barterjoe_0.gif
Try adjusting the blade cable on the upper handle. this unit has an adjustable section. make sure the cable is not so tight that you snap it.
2 --A sticky pivot point under the belt cover
The belt cover in the back builds up with dirt and debris. Make sude it is clean under the cover and all of the pivots move freely. ( do this with the engine off)
3 --A sticky belt tensioner under the deck cover
The underside of this machine has a metal cover to protect the belts. Remove it and check that the blade belt idler arm is not frozen in place. this will cause the belt not to enguage all the way.
4 --A worn belt or belt pulley
The large flywheel and pulley can wear. Check this if the belt looks good.
This is all there is to the machine BBC system.
I hope this helps.

Blade won't engage - mower starts and propells itself, but when the yellow arm is pulled and lowered to engage the blade, nothing happens.


The blade is probably belt driven, and the belt is either broken, need adjusting, worn that bad, or there is a pulley problem. Get it in the air and check that the belt tightens. It will not be completely tight, there should be a tiny bit of play when engaged.

No power when drive is engaged


Hi
Check your drive belt and the tensioner pulley that holds tension on the drive belt. Its possible for the tensioner pulley to be sticking and not putting enough pressure on the drive belt causing it to slip.
Grab hold of that tensioner pully and make sure it moves in and out freely against the drive belt.
