My Toro Pace Master self propelled 22" 6.75 mower will not move by itself. I can push the mower and cut. It does start with no problem. I have a cable on left side of the mower that extends to the top of the handle broken off at the top of the mower and is loose. Is there a way to check to see if this is why it will not self propel. It attaches to the push handle that does I push down to propel the mower. Any suggestions?

I have a toro self propelled rear wheel drive mower, I changed the belt and now it won't let me pull the mower backwards. The self propelled works great.


If the new belt is not the same length as the old one it will cause it the not release properly. Even one eighth of an inch too short.

I bought a self propelled Toro mower and it is hard to pull backwards. I removed the plastic toe guard and that did not help. I also have a White "brand" self propelled and it is easy to pull backwards.


The self propel system uses a type of racheting pinion drive that sometimes gets greased up and wont release like it should.

You would need to remove the wheels and pinions and look at the shaft ends for a key, a ball and a spring. This is the "pawl" that locks the wheels going forward and rachets when the wheels go backwards.

Clean up the parts of all the aluminum colored grease and reoil with something lighter. 3 in 1 would do nicely. Reassemble.

Now the next time you start going backwards and it jams...just push the mower forwards slightly without engaging the drive and see if the unit doesnt free itself.

Good luck and be careful!

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
