Question about Toro 42'' Zero Turn Lawn Mower 22hp Kawa Consumer

1 Answer

Trouble starting and a lot of black smoke at startup

I have a Toro 38" Zero-Turn Timecutter tractor. I have changed the oil, spark plug, and batter to no avail. The unit is only 4 years old with maybe 50 hours of use in its life. Could it be bad gas? The only things I have not changed are the oil filter and air filter. The air filter is clear however.

Could be. Black smoke means too muck fuel or not burning properly. Also make sure your oil is not over full.
