Not sure which model you have, but the rear wheel drive that I have, 20070, transmission goes out every year. Toro had a real bad design on that transmission and they know it. They made a change in 2009 models to try and eliminate the problem and also give a lifetime warranty on the transmission. Model years 2006 thru 2008 has a single bearing on a half shaft and the torque of the drive belt is too much for that single bearing. I am on my second replacement and had an extreme conversation with Customer Service. Go past the first level, "Sorry It's Out of Warranty" to supervision and let them know about their product and insist they repair it. This has been going on for a month for me but I think you have to push these manufacturers to do what is right.

    Identical problem with my three year old Toro.The single upper bearing let go and the bevel gear stripped clean. No lubrication was seen in the sealed bearing.Quite a job to remove the transmission and bearing.I will just junk it due to repair cost $250 plus .The electric start is also in need of repair. Cost to replace battery,drive belt, repair electri start ,transmission replacement far exceeds the replacement costs Toro is junk.Time to go back to Sears

Yes it is the transmission. A Mower shop will charge you about $225 to fix.. I order parts online and fixed mine for $90. Transmission consist of 3 gears which turns the rear wheels to self-propel.

I would probably take it back to where I bought it to begin with. But, I have an old Huskavara mower self propelled, at times if I set it on top of two 4 x 6 blocks (6 inches up) I have to take off the wheels and clean up the axles using thinner, degreaser, or gas, anything to break down oil or dirt. Then I oil the surfaces and reassemble, and the wheels work for a while.

SELF PROPELL NOT WORKING GOOD


Have you checked the belt that drives the wheel? This is more than likely the problem. It may be broken.

Self-propelled feature runs slow and won't pull as it should!


Check the belt tension. There is a spring that holds the tension and connects the gearbox to the mower deck. If it has slipped off the belt will not be tightened properly.
Hope this helps.
