Question about Garden

1 Answer

Self propelled JS63 Deere Lawn Mower Transmission is driving axle but rear wheels act like they are slipping. It seems like gears on end of axle are not engaging the drive gear on the inside hub of the wheel. No adjustment apparent. Any input would be appreciated.

Some times you can add a thin shim to the out side of the wheel mounting center to push the wheel gentally a little more to the drive gear for more positive engagement to the wheels inside gearing, also check your gear drive mounting pins/ keys for wear if thier warn it will engage the end of the drive shaft iradically appearing as slipping type movment at the wheel hope this Helps Steve

Yes it is the transmission. A Mower shop will charge you about $225 to fix.. I order parts online and fixed mine for $90. Transmission consist of 3 gears which turns the rear wheels to self-propel.

Self propelled lawn mower makes whinning noise


disconnect the spark plug turn the mower on its side and inspect the drive belt on the pulley above the blade (on the crankshaft) it may have a shroud over it. Also there is a small gear case that maybe dry that the belt drives, that goes to the wheels, Also try lifting the drive wheels up off the ground and engage them and see if it still does it. if it stops once lifted it might be the bushings on the axle its self.

I have a 1987 Toro GTS Self propelled walk behind mower- My question is that it runs fine but but seems to be slippling and can't get out of it's own way


  • Check for belt stretching even if it looks good. Next possibility
Is worn smooth, or oily surfaces on drive wheels. Can you tell if it slips on drive wheel, or those driven. Some Hondas have belt tensioners which can be too loose. See if axle on drive wheel is in a slotted, rather than round whole, meaning you could loosen/retighten while putting pressure on it to lengthen distance to driven wheels.

My toro 6.5hp 22" front drive mower does not dive


There is a transmission, a pinion gear connected to the belt end, and a larger bevel gear connected to the axle, all inside an aluminum shell, we could call it a basic transmission. On my Toro the bevel gear had flat spots on about a third of the teeth, hence it wasn't continuously driving the axle. A new pinion and bevel gear where found as a set on Ebay for $30 plus $5 shipping.

Also the plastic gears in each of the front wheels can wear out and you need new wheel assemblies, they cost about $15 apiece at Sears if you pick them up, $10 more if shipped. Take your old one in, they can match it.

Troy-built 21" mower - self propel problem. From my research it seems like a manufacturer problem that was availiable thru a claim but I am the 2nd owner so I must fix myself. Its a model 834. I have...


do you have the complete model number from the data tag on the mower frame? there are two typical systems for these machines, both require the belt to be tight and not slipping at the crank shaft, and the pulley on the trans-axle to not be slipping on its shaft, the older style trans axle uses a belt tensioner system to tighten the belt and turn the pulley, i.e. if the pulley turns then the axle should too. this can be checked by hand with the axle and belt removed. the second system is a clutch style axle that has a constantly tight belt and uses a small cable controlled lever on the transmission housing to engage a drive clutch inside the transaxle, if moving the lever forward doesn't cause the axle to turn as the pulley and shaft are turning the clutch mechanism is usually toast. with both of these systems one should also note whether the axle is turning inside the wheels when they are on the ground, the over running clutch sprags inside the drive gears could be stuck causing the wheels to turn without resistance applied, but stall when in contact with the ground.

while inspecting the trans axle note any wobble or free play in the axles or input shaft, this will indicate a worn case or bearing, resulting in a slipping gear in the trans axle.

My self propelled high wheel mower doesn't go


If this is a TroyBilt 34068, check your belt to make sure it is still on the transmission pulley. If the belt is in place, start it up, engage the transmission and observe both axle ends where they protrude from the center of the wheels, if one of them is turning, you have somehow lost the square key that locks the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you will be good to go

Can't push my self propelled lawn mower!


Remove the drive wheels and have a look at the gear teeth in them. If even slightly worn, they need replacing. If you run the mower with the wheels off, that end elevated with a block, see if the axle turns when you engage the drive. If it does, your transmission is fine. Wheels are a lot easier to change than a tranny.
