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.

Was trying to avoid the unavoidable.

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).

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
