Hyd. noise when turning

This is a well used Toro Zmaster 222. I am new to the world of Zturn mowers but not mechanics. I would like to know if there is an adjustment for the hydro. the mower makes a whine similar to a noise in the power steering of a car when over extended.

SOURCE: Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower

1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

SOURCE: I have a Toro Z14-38

There is very little likelyhood that you will be able to get the manual that you want.
First TORO has proprietary information on their products.
Second is the fact that you are agreeing to only pay 4 dollars for something like that.

The only other thing that you can do is look in the US patents database to see what you can find.

SOURCE: my toro lawn mower is hard to start in cold

This is covered by the Warranty. Take it to a local dealer like and have the thermostat replaced.
The first generation thermostats are known for sticking.

Good luck

How to raise the deck of a Toro SS 5000 mower above the highest factroy setting

Hi Robert:
I'd start by looking at the mechanism with the engine off while someone else moved the height adjust lever from hi to lo several times.
There will be 2 or 3 linkages that connect the deck vertically to the height adjust mechanism. Shortening these linkages should raise the cut height. If you're lucky, there should be enough clearance to allow the linkages to be drilled so that you can simply move the mounting pins into the new holes.
Or, you could make shorter linkages.
Best of luck.

Mx5050 toro zero turn mower, one drive arm more dominant than the other. With both arms all the way forward the mower slightly turns to the left. Any adjustments to correct this issue?

1st with mover off verify that both handles move same amount forward , I use a string to measure them , they both have mechanical stops that do bend and move sometimes
second locate control body valve , (thing that handles connect too) there should be a pump pressure adjust (allen key) on the side of this your gonna need to make small adjustments and try it , is difficult to do if you don't have a lift to elevate wheels of mower (but is possible without ) but takes patience

Where is the oil drain on a toro zmaster

It should be on the right side of engine when standing behind unit facing front. You should see the oil filter and just below that you'll see a pipe with a plastic end. Turn whichever way it will turn and pull out. it doesn't come off so don't pull or turn hard.

I have a Toro 16hp 38 in hxl with the parking brake stuck, is there a trick to this i dont know.

The snapping sound by the starter is either a bad cable connection or a bad starter. Check the cable at the starter to make sure it is tight and not corroded. If that is ok then test the starter. As for the parking brake, most mowers have a small disk with two brake pads like a disk brake on a car that is controlled by the brake/clutch pedal. Release the brake and check to see if the mechanism on the transmission is releasing. If it isn't it may need an adjustment
