Yes...tightening the belt happens when the handle is pulled...take the cover off the belt an see if there is play in the pulley on top of the transmission...if there is the trans is bad and must be replaced...

Have a toro lawnmower mdl #20012 front whell drive. When I engage the system it makes a grinding sound & when I take the weight of the wheels it runs smooth. Seems like a gear but not sure. Could it...


Some have gear in each wheel. Remove wheel see if plastic in wheel is worn out. Home Depot or Lowes carries some replacement wheels. Lawn mower repair shops sell them also.

Front wheels quit pulling


Ya most likely the lever that you normally squeeze to make it "go" has a cable. Cables stretch just like belts. If you replaced the belt already then that automatically removes any stretching that the first belt would have suffered from no doubt. Look at the drive lever's cable up at the lever end. There is usually a cable adjuster there. It will be a threaded shaft portion with a nut or knurled ring to spin. tighten up that "go lever" cable a bit. Even better, if you have visual access to the belt as you squeeze the drive lever, then you can see if squeezing that lever moves one of the belt's pulleys enough to cause it to tighten it up enough to transfer spin motion thru the belt to the other pulley. You see that whole system is really a "slip belt clutch" when belt is loose, no forward motion, as you squeeze the "go/drive" lever the pulley moves away tightening up the belt more and more. The tighter the belt, the less the slippage, the faster you go! But the slippage is necessary! ( That's the clutch component) If you simply had the belt tight all the time, the mower would always go full speed! It would be in full time "run away mode" LOL! so watch out. Once you see it in action...you'll get the idea no problem!

Front drive wheels won't engage


Is it possible that the belt has either broken or come off the pulleys? Next step would be to remove the cover and see if there is something preventing engagement or if you see any broken parts. May even be as simple as lubricating the cable/levers.

Rear wheel drive does not push mower when engaged. But, when mower rear wheels are lifted off the ground, they turn weakly.


remove the rear wheels and check the gears in the wheels- they are plastic and part of the circumfrance on the inside of the wheel. If worn replace wheels.
also check belt- it should be tight with very little play when drive is engaged ( obvioulsy check this with engine off).

Drive belt not engaging. need more tension on


does the lever feel spongy when you try to engage it(not solid as it felt new)? usually this is caused by tightening the adjustment screw too far out.if so you brobally have a bad engagement lever on the transmission. the bad news is the lever is not avalible alone. you either have to bite the bullet and buy a transmission or find a junker that dosen't have the same problem.

Toro 22in Lawn mower. Loud gear noise when try to engage drive.


Problem is in the rear pinion gears on rear axle and the design of the axle itself. I have a 2005 model 20041 had the same problem. I found a Toro dealer that had the fix.The problem is creadted by the fact that there is too much "play" in the rear axle. You have to limit that play by installing shims, or washers First, but the 2 new rear pinion gears for the rear axle. While you're at it, you may as well buy 2 new rear wheels because the "grinding" has worn the sprockets on the reas r wheels.Next, get 2 "fender washers", 1/2" ID and about 1" OD. I found it easier to turn the mower over and set it on saw horses to work on it.( drain the gas and oil first). Remove both rear wheels, pinion gears and all the washers etc. (caution - keep all parts from one side together - do not pile all parts together - keep them seperated by wheel - the reason is I believe there is one more washer/shim on the right side than on the left). Now to put everything back together, find a spot on the axle where the washer will fit in between the standard stuff.Install new pinion gears and replace the rest of the washers/shims just as they came off. INstall new wheels and you'll be good as new!

How to remove plastic front wheel drive cover on Toro Recycler


On my Toro recycler, I also had the front drive stop working -- and fixed it after reading the solutions here.

First, the plastic cover on the top deck that goes over the front drive mechanism must be loosened enough to pull it up. Before you can do that, on the underside there is one screw to take out.

Once that's done, all you have to do is pry the plastic cover up enough to see the belt and pulley that make up the front drive assembly. On mine, the belt had simply come off the pulley. Putting the belt back on, then tightening things back up is all it took to put the Toro back in sel-propelled happiness. Good luck!
