Hi,

The black cover on the front of the mower is held on by couple of screws from underneath. You have to remove the cover which will give you access to where the cable connects to. Then use a pair of pliers to squeeze the end of the cable to disconnect it from its mounting hole. Now loosen the cable clamp, pull the cable downward to remove all the slack then push the cable jacket up 1/8" and secure with the cable clamp.

I have ordered and received a new traction cable for my Toro Recycler Lawn Mower. However, no instructions. How do I attach this cable so that the mower is once again self propelled?


That can be a tough one the cable that houses the throat cable is the secret to make it work. Look at your old cable and make sure it is in stalled in the same position and work backwards until it works . If the cable is not adjusted right you can not get full power.

Limited self propell


The self propel cable needs to be adjusted. This can be done with a 7/16 wrench. loosen the nut that holds the self propel cable in place. You may need to pry this open with a screwdriver. Don't overdo it or you could break the plastic. Once the cable is loose pull it toward the mower deck, once the slack is out of the cable press the self propel handle in about a half of an inch. This should be close to what it was from the factory. Then re tighten the nut. And check the self propel to make sure it is engaging properly. If you hear a grinding noise when trying to engage the transmission then you will need a new transmission. Depending on if it is a front or rear self propel the part alone is either $60-$75 retail. Most repair shops will charge an hour to do this repair. I hope this answers your question.

Replace the cable traction (part #105-1844)


I just replaced mine and it was a little difficult and took me roughly an hour to do. First, download the walk behind power mover drive systems at https://homeownersolutions.toro.com/portal/server.pt?space=CommunityPage&cached=true&parentname=CommunityPage&parentid=1&in_hi_userid=30166&control=SetCommunity&CommunityID=225&PageID=30031#manualsResultPage

While they do not specifically address replacing the cable, you can find out how they do it when replacing the drive belt. As I said, it took me about an hour and I just about had to remove the transmission and rear drive assembly in order to unhook the original cable. Good luck!

My toro self propelled isn't self propelling


It may just be a matter of adjusting the cable. Sometimes they dont get them adjusted just right from the factory,heres what you do. Locate the plastic shroud in front of the push mower that covers the drive unit.Determine which screwdriver or torx bit is needed to remove shroud and remove it. After removal you will see a pulley with belt around it, as you pull the handle back to engage self propel you should see the pulley move into the belt to put tension on the belt. You can do this with it running to see if enough tension is being put on the belt,if not, locate the cable end where the small bracket holds the cable in place. Loosen the cable bracket and move cable until you have correct tension again,hope this helps.

Front ppropelled mower


You dont adjust the belt,you adjust the cable that moves the pulley into the belt. There will be a small single bracket close to the engine side of the mower that holds the cable in place. Simply loosen bracket and move cable until pulley contacts belt enough to engage self propel.

Toro 20016 self propel


If you take the wheels off and remove the belt from the small pulley on the the front axle underneath the pulley you should see a small transmission. You usually can split this unit in half . You will see two gears and sometimes one plastic and one metal. The plastic one is usually the culprit. Hope this will help you out. Donnyb60
