Question about Toro Zero Turn Rider 74366 Lawn Mower Tractor Rider Ztr

1 Answer

Hello I have a toro zero turn rider z4220 I think I bought it new about 2 to 3yrs ago when I was putting it up last winter the left drive would not go forward or reverse then shortly there after the right side stopped. so now this spring I have started working on it. the drive belt is tight and not worn I have a small yard. the pulley going into the top of the drive is turning on both sides but no drive on either side. no oil leaks no damage anywhere it has not been overworked with this little yard. the gearbox is not even dirty. this is very disappointing. on such a new machine could this be a defect with these gearboxes. I am a industrial mechanic by trade but am stumped as to what went wrong. thank you for your help

    Thank you woobie dog. the control rods that you use to push it around were in the proper position but they are flimsy and went put in the midway position in-between the push mode and the drive mode that fixed it. evidently this is intended to float if you put it into the drive mode slot as I had it the mower wouldn't move I moved the lever to in-between and that fixed it Thank You

Hello, W/D here.

Look for a transmission disconnect rod, usually at the back of the tractor, about even with the top of the gearbox. If it has been moved to the out position, the transmission will not operate from the seat, but you can push it.

Good luck, --W/D--

Why won't my rider move and keep running?

Something is jammed in the drive and when you put the mower in gear the motor stalls. U need to locate the source of the problem - once you do that all will be copacetic.

Will run but doesn't move

If it doesn't move at all; I would check the drive belt first, then the belt idler pulleys. Just make sure that no one has put the hydro units in bypass mode so they could move the mower without the engine running without your knowledge..

Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run

I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

I need to find out what the voltage output and the miliamp output is on a toro z4220 mower my battery keeps going dead i have replaced it once already Thank yoy

You should have around 13.1 volts at the battery as the engine runs. If its 12 volts or lower - check or replace the voltage regulator. To check the regulator, stop engine, remove regulator plug, get a ohm meter and put the black lead to any ground,and touch the red lead to all the terminals one by one on the voltage regulator - you should get 3 readings - one lower than the other. If you dont get any readings - the regulator is definitely bad

Hello, my Toro 14-38 hxl (model 71193)is not

I have 12-38 hxl, and if my grass is too tall, it will wedge under the cutting deck and lock the blades, and the belt willstart smoking white. With the motor off look under and see if you do not have something stuck (branches or grass).Also, check your sparkplug.
