I have a TORO, FWD, walk behind mower, new in 2008 and last month had the transmission replaced (under warranty). Today as I went to mow I noticed that the mower would not roll across the lawn (engine off) as the front wheels were frozen. I started the mower and she ran fine, FWD worked as designed and the front wheels, if I tried to push the mower, seemed to roll with FWD not engaged and engine on. Once I shut the engine off the front wheels again sere frozen. Is the transmission going South again?
Thanks for the reply, it appears as if the control cable for the FWD was misset, I loosen4d the cable, and pulled it forward toward the engine to remove all slack, and the wheels now seem to function correctly. I guess the cable was too tight and perhaps trying to engage the transmission with engine off.
