Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
The mower runs great, but it will not move in any gear, nor will the wheels turn even when the it's in the neutral position. Had a new drive belt put on and the repair person said he could not find any thing else wrong with it. I took it home and mowed with for about 15 minutes and it froze up again. need help in plain city. Thanks Larry
As you understand there are serveral reasons for this behaviour. ......Oil has run into the cylinder.
The Engine Safety Brake is not disengaging an is keeping the motor from turning clean the spark plug and the airfilter.........then go for it!! Pull the plug out and check for oil. when you had it on its side maybe some oil got into the cylinder. If so you need to drain this out and clean the plug. Let it set for a day and try again. Or try pulling the cord with the plug removed to see what comes out. Just recheck your oil level prior to starting.Always, when getting under the deck, raise the mower so the plug is skyward. If you do this, you will not get the oil accumulation in the cylinder and air cleaner... Makes a real mess when it takes off, and plugs up your air cleaner
If its still locked up.. and you've made sure the cylinder is free of any oil....., make sure the flywheel brake (its let go when you hold the handle down) is actually letting go of the flywheel. Take the shroud off (4 bolts) to get a good look at it.

Tips for a great answer:
IMPORTANT: SHOULD YOUR TRANSMISSION REQUIRE REMOVAL FOR SERVICE OR REPLACEMENT, IT SHOULD BE PURGED AFTER REINSTALLATION BEFORE OPERATING THE TRACTOR.
Step 1- Place the rear of the mower safely onto jackstands on a level surface with engine off and parking brake set.
Step 2- Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control, located at the back of the frame, in the freewheeling position.
2a- Mowers with seperate pumps and wheel motors the freewheel is activated by turnign the bypass valves, one on each pump, two full turns.
The oil resevoir needs to be filled to the specifications listed in the owners manual before starting the purge procedure.
Step 3- Sitting in the operators seat(riders), start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
Step 4-Move motion control levers to full forward position and hold for five (5) seconds. Move levers to full reverse position and hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this procedure three (3) times.
NOTE: During this procedure there may be some movement of the drive wheels, but they are not under load. The air is being removed from hydraulic drive system.
Step 5-Move motion control levers to neutral (N) position. Shutoff engine and set parking brake. Check and add oil as needed for units with an oil resevoir.
Step 6-Engage transmission by placing freewheel control into driving position, or by closing the bypass valves on the pumps.
Step 7-Sitting in the operators seat, start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to full speed. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
Step 8-Slowly move motion control levers forward, after the tractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion control levers to reverse position.
After the mower moves approximately five (5) feet return the motion control levers to the neutral (N) position. Repeat this procedure with the motion control levers three (3) times.
Step 9-Your mower is now purged and now ready for normal operation.For further information or assistance, we recommend contacting your lo
