Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you checked the transmission drive belt? There is also a clutching mechanism on the top of the transmission that has a pad on it, it is possible that this pad may be worn out or broken which would cause the machine to not pull itself as well. If you can provide the model and serial number from the tag under the hood I can send you a diagram of what it looks like.
There is also a chain that runs from the side of the transmission down to the differential that may have come off or broken. You may also check to make sure that the bolts are still in place that lock the rear wheels onto the axle. If either one of them were to break or come out the machine would not pull itself or mover. Did you hear anything just prior to it stopping?
Here is a picture of the differential and chain that I am referring to. This model machine was built somewhere between 1983 - 1990.
Alright. All you will need is a new belt and you should be back in business.
I am working on getting a diagram of the drive belt. Do you know what the serial number on the machine happens to be?
Here is a diagram of the transmission drive belt. I hope that it helps you to get the belt replaced.
It is Toro part number 47-1410 or Stens aftermarket part number 248-048. This belt will be 1/2" wide X 48" long.
You also have a belt that runs the mower deck that could be replaced as well. It is Toro part number 47-1420 or Stens aftermarket part number 248-066 which is 1/2" wide X 66" long.
A popular parts website is www.jackssmallengines.com if you want to purchase online. You can also purchase the belts at just about any automotive parts store or farm store. You can also purchase through any of your local small engine or lawn equipment repair shops in your area.
Is there anything else that I can help you with? If not I Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.

I am including a copy of the owners manual that gives you instructions on page 21 of how to replace the transmission drive belt. I hope that this helps.
