Customer Question

Toro 5060mx was driving and suddenly stopped. Even pushing in pins to roll it won't let it move
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: It starts fine. Trying to go either way it won't move. Arms fill a bit stiff. Pushed in back pins so I could push it and it still won't move.
JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: No
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello. Thank you for choosing Just answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Check to see if your drive belt is broken, loose, or off of one your pulleys. I am sure your deck drive belt is okay. You and I can continue from here. Thanks!

Hello?
Expert:  Donald replied 6 months ago.
The best way to check your belt, is by looking under your mower, from the rear.

Got it. It is off. An easy way to reattach?
Expert:  Donald replied 6 months ago.
You will put your belt around your engine pulley and both transaxles pulleys first, then around your idler pulley.
Expert:  Donald replied 6 months ago.
Then you will need to re-attach the spring that attaches to your idler pulley.
Expert:  Donald replied 6 months ago.
It is sort of hard to stretch your spring. If you use a piece of rope to pull your spring, it will be easier to attach.
Expert:  Donald replied 6 months ago.
Just loop your rope over the hook on your spring.
