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.

Wheels are locked when trying to push it forward with engine shut off.


There should be a release to disengage the drive system so you can push it when not running. On my Cub Cadet it is on the back above the hitch. It is a simple lever that I pull out and push up to disengage. Has to be something similar on the toro.

Toro timemaster is 3+ years old and doesn't self propel when you push the handle forward any longer.


Either the transmission is shot or the gears on the wheels that turn have been worn away;. They are plastic and do not last long nor take much abuse.

Is the tension spring gone? How is the cable? Usually there is a spring at the end of the cable in which when you pull back on the bar with your hands, this tightens the belt so that it engages with the engine allowing the wheels to turn.

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.

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!

My toro self propelled lawn mower won't roll backwards... the wheels are locked up


My Toro Pace Master self propelled 22" 6.75 mower will not move by itself. I can push the mower and cut. It does start with no problem. I have a cable on left side of the mower that extends to the top of the handle broken off at the top of the mower and is loose. Is there a way to check to see if this is why it will not self propel. It attaches to the push handle that does I push down to propel the mower. Any suggestions?
