Question about Toro Garden

1 Answer

I HAVE A TORO SP WALK-BEHIND LAWNMOWER MODEL #20064. THE SELF-PROPELLED MECHANISM HAS STOPPED WORKING. I REPLACED THE BELT AND ADJUSTED THE CABLE, BUT THE PROBLEM REMAINS. IF I DEPRESS THE BAR TO ENGAGE THE SELF-PROPEL DRIVE ONLY ABOUT HALF-WAY THE DRIVE WILL ENGAGE, BUT WILL NOT HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO PULL THE MOWER. IF I FULLY DEPRESS THE BAR IT DOESN'T ENGAGE. THIS WAS THE PROBLEM TO BEGIN WITH. ANY IDEAS?

It sounds like the cable still needs more adjustment. The cable needs to be tighter. This is going to be hard to explain by typing. But I will give it a try. When you pull the handle in about 1/2 way mark the place where the lever on the drive motor is at. And take the cable loose and reattach the cable back to the mark that you made previously. So when the bar is released, it is like it is pulled in half way now. I hope that this makes sense. Let me know if I need to try to explain more.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

The self propel system slowly stopped working and now doesn't work at all, what could it be?


Hello,

You didn't specify the make or model of your mower, but generically speaking for self-propelled walk-behind mowers, the drive belt or the front wheel gears can wear out after several years of use. The drive belt could also be loose or off the pulley. The belt and the front wheels can usually be replaced.

You can remove the drive pulley cover and see if the belt is off.

The other components that make up the drive system are the gearbox and the engagement cable. Sometimes the cable can get get out of adjustment or come loose.

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


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.

Hi - My 4 yr old toro self pace lawnmower suddenly stopped self propelling. any suggestions?


Check the drive belt and linkages/cables
Also the transmission area could have become plugged with grass/debris not allowing linkages to move properly.

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.
