Toro Help

6 posts in this topic

Anyone out there ever have issues with the drive system on the Toro Personal Pace mowers? I have an 03 model that loses drive power when it has any sort of load on it. The engine runs great but the drive is losing it. I've been told to take up the slack on the drive cable, replace the belt and clean under the housing by the belt. Has anyone run into this problem and if so what was the solution?

Take it to an authorized repair shop and have it checked out.

I'd say that is the response that should have been given.

The belts get old and loosen up, and you pull up the slack on the drive cable to make the pulley engage tighter.

I used to own a Toro PP a few years back. I had the same issue. I replaced the belt and it seemed to fix the problem. If the mower is five years old, the belt over time will stretch thus losing tension on the pulleys. Also if I remember right there is also a spring which connects the cable and the lever which engages the pulley (check the tension on spring).

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • I did.  Political.
