Question about Garden
Routine maintenance is required on the drive gears on these Toro mowers and Toro doesn't tell anybody. Put a block under the rear end to lift the wheel off the ground. Remove the wheel. You will see the drive gear. VERY IMPORTANT: take good notes, pictures, etc..when dissasembling. Remove the outer snap ring retainer from the axle shaft. Next should be a thin washer. Remove the washer. Pay very close attention to the gear, as it has to go back on in exactly the same direction. Remove the gear. There is a slot in the axle shaft. Rotate the axle to have this slot pointed up. In the slot is a small key (rectangular piece of metal), remove the key. Under this key is a spring. It, and the key, is stuck in the axle slot, therefore not allowing the gear to drive the wheel. Dig out the key and spring, clean them and the slot. Put a dab of axle grease in the slot and reassemble. In my shop, this is part of a mower tune-up, and is recommended every 50 running hours. That is usually every other year for the average home-owner.
DO NOT TIP your mower over to do this repair. Mowers are just like cars, they like all 4 wheels to stay on the ground. Tipping a mower over can/will cause fluids to go places they aren't supposed to go.
This is a relatively simple repair and can be done with basic mechanical knowledge and basic tools.
Do the other side too, it needs it.
