Question about Toro Lawnmower 20099 Mower Mowers Lawn
The self propel cable needs to be adjusted. This can be done with a 7/16 wrench. loosen the nut that holds the self propel cable in place. You may need to pry this open with a screwdriver. Don't overdo it or you could break the plastic. Once the cable is loose pull it toward the mower deck, once the slack is out of the cable press the self propel handle in about a half of an inch. This should be close to what it was from the factory. Then re tighten the nut. And check the self propel to make sure it is engaging properly. If you hear a grinding noise when trying to engage the transmission then you will need a new transmission. Depending on if it is a front or rear self propel the part alone is either $60-$75 retail. Most repair shops will charge an hour to do this repair. I hope this answers your question.
