I have a toro self-propelled 20017 mower[almost 3+ yrs old] and it has
suddenly stoped self-propelling. The engine starts without any
It takes a lot of strength to move the mower.
I heard a loud pop before it stopped working. Blade is ok.
I will start working on it tomorrow, will check the belt first.
Is there anything else I should be looking at?
Thank you for your help.
Depends on how they do the drive. Does it use a belt and pulleys only
or does it also use an actual transmission to set the speeds, as some
do? If it's just the belt type, then besides the belt it could be the
cable has come loose or broken, or a spring or other part of the
moving mechanism has failed. If it's the tranny type, then besides
all of the above, it could be the tranny. On my Sears the belt/
mechanism is under a plastic cover on the top of the deck and the
cover easily comes off with two screws.
