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

"Is this a design flaw by Toro?" (sic) Well, it indeed maybe, it definitely, isn't helping the situation. Here's what to do, get some Mesh, and fasten it across the opening, this will stop most things from gaining egress, and protect what is behind, If that's not sufficient, then perhaps a Plastic,sheet (perhaps if required some holes in it). fastened, across the aperture, will work. In any case I have no doubt, you have the idea of what to do to remedy this situation.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the reply. I have already sent a few scathing letters to Toro regarding this. I have only had the mower for less than a year."
If you are lucky, you have only sheared the flywheel key and messed up the blade. The flywheel key is under the top cover and under the flywheel along an indent in the side of the crankshaft. Those parts would have to be removed to check it....most likely it's sheared (broken) which is what it is supposed to do (most are made of aluminum) when the blade hits an immovable object. It CAN be fixed and there are videos and forum HOW TO's on this subject. A new key is very inexpensive and replacing one is a good learning experience.

Testimonial: "rycgl, I thank you for giving me very accurate advice. I took the flywheel off and sure enough the flywheel key had been sheared off. "
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.
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.
