SOURCE: Toro self paced lawn mower works just fine going

Your cable might need renewing, it could be rusted or frayed where it connects to the gear lever,or the lever itself could be stuck. Try spraying it with W D 40. Check the gears inside the wheels, they might be stuck and need freeing and oiling. Stephen.

Toro self paced lawn mower works just fine going forward. Cannot pull mower backwards, wheels are stuck.

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!

I have a toro lawn mower it is a little hard to go forward but does go. It doesnt go backwards at all. Can you help me! Joanne


Check the drive belt for flat spots. If it is ok then it is probably an internal transmission problem
