So i have one of the newer Toro self propelled lawn mowers. I can get the model number if needed. Here is the problem. The first time I mowed this season it started right up and it ran fine. Had no problems. A couple of days later I went to run it again and here is what happens...
It will start fine and sounds fine when on, when I go to engage the self propelled to move forward it shuts off. If I pull back a bit and push the mower myself it runs fine but its nearly impossible with how the self propelled thing works by just pushing on the handle.
A couple of notes...I checked the oil level and it is low, not to the point where the "REFILL" is showing but pretty low. Secondly - I put gas in it that was sitting in my shed all winter...I feel like it wouldn't start at all if that was the problem though.
Please help - I don't want to pay for someone to come pick it up and have it for 2 weeks and pay all that money if its a simple fix. I just bought it last fall and used it maybe 10 times. There can't be that much wrong with it.
