Question and Answers

Q:

toro mower #20073 wheel dont pull mower ,locks when backing up.do i need to replace belt (loose ?) or replace gear box all greese is hard, ? 20073 Toro Mower

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help you. Upon researching model 20073 I found if the belt is loose it could cause issues but more slipping than locking up. It could be more with the transmission locking up internally when trying to go in reverse. IF the belt is loose from being stretched I would start there. Then go with transmission.

If you have any further questions please re-post. Thank you for choosing Sears have a great day.

A:

Take the wheels off and inspect the drive gear from the axle and see if it appears damaged or worn. Also, you want to take the wheel off on one side and try to drive the mower (hold the mower handles so that corner does not sit on the ground) and see if the drive gear is turning. If it's not, the transmission very like has an internal problem.

Let me know what you find on it.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

In which direction does blade bolt turn to remove it from the engine shaft of a Toro Mower?

A:

The bolt should loosen by turning the same direction the blade spins in. The bolts are designed that way to be sure the torque of spinning the blade can not loosen the bolt.

If you are having trouble getting it loose you can try some penetrating oil or an impact gun. Sometimes just hitting the bolt head sharply will "shock" the threads and help with loosening, just be careful not to hit it so hard you damage the bolt head or shaft or crank bearings.

Probably the most important factor is to use a socket, or closed end wrench, that fits snuggly and securely on the bolt head and block the blade from turning with a piece of wood or something similar. That way you can be sure all the force you are exerting actually goes toward loosening the bolt. Be sure to wear heavy gloves and a shirt with sleeves and eye protection just in case.
