Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I have a Toro Walk behind self propelled-Front wheels, they quit pulling. I have replaced the belt but that didn't do any good. Any Suggestions??
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!
