Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

I have a Toro Proline walk behind . Problems with the self propel

I have a Toro Proline walk behind . I believe that its a 1993 or earlier model! The drive system is not wortkijng all that great ! In fact it will barely pull it's self in 2nd gear! I have to push with my feet to get it rolling in 4th, its top gear. Even at that, it will not pull its self up hill! It will hardley pull its self up hill in 1'st or for that matter, up the slightest incline!
It's a hydrostatic powered mower , with drive belts, lever bar for controls, 4 speed with reverse, I'm not sure, but I think it has a 44 inch deck, or possibly a 52' or 54 if they made one that size! It's powered by a 17 h.p. motor that runs great!
Could my problem be in the drive belts! Possibly just worn out, stretched out beyond ajustment! Or is the problem going to stem from inside the transmission, or the hydrostatiic droive ! And if so is there any remendy to repairing the problem! I'm sure that parts wear out in the drive ! But from the symtoms that I mention is there parts that sound like that they have done there tour of duty and just need to be replaced in a basic rebuild or is it more cost effective to replace the drive unit as a whole! Any suggestionsd or answers or tips would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks Again! Jack Getting

I suspect the drive belt, not the Hydro. Especially if the drive belt was never replaced. The belts are known to stretch and wear out over time. It's a cheap part.

I have one like this and mine has adjustments to account for stretching. I would start there.

Have a self-starting, self propelled toro lawn mower about 5 years old, I ran it out of gas by accident & now it won't start


It seems to be an obstruction in your fuel delivery system. Get a can of ether and a spray a short burst of it into the breather area near the carburetor, if the mower starts up and then stalls out, then you may need to get your carburetor serviced.

I would probably take it back to where I bought it to begin with. But, I have an old Huskavara mower self propelled, at times if I set it on top of two 4 x 6 blocks (6 inches up) I have to take off the wheels and clean up the axles using thinner, degreaser, or gas, anything to break down oil or dirt. Then I oil the surfaces and reassemble, and the wheels work for a while.

6.5 toro walk behind self propell b&s engine. self propel does not work


Try adjusting your self propel cable. A slight extension of the cable (1/4 inch) will double speed, so do a little at a time. Take the back guard off and clean debris 2 or 3 screws and it is just a cover so nothing will pop out unless that is your real problem. You should have grease fittings behind rear wheels so squirt 2 times with grease gun in each wheel and 1 squirt every 3rd mow.
