Toro Personal Pace drive belt

tom229(5b MA)July 14, 2009

I hope someone can help me out. I have a Toro Personal Pace lawnmower (model #20332) that I bought this year. I use it part time commercially and the 45 day commercial warranty is expired.

The drive belt has come off the pulley. I'd like to try to fix it but the owner's manual doesn't mention belts. I took some parts off to try to get at it but there seems to be a "guard" around the pulley that I don't know how to remove.

If someone could give me step by step directions (I'm not very mechanically experienced) as to how to get it back on I'd be grateful!!

Also, if I can't do it would it be possible to just buy a length of belt, not a loop, and weave it around the pulley and then somehow connect the ends of the belt?

Thanks,

Tom

Maybe there's a how-to website with a video I could download?

When you go into the dealer to buy the new belt (don't try to rig it, you will be replacing it again very soon if you do), ask them how to replace it. If they are a decent dealer they will have no qualms in helping you out. Unfortunately you bought a residential mower and it will probably not last long when used commercially (I would bet you will be replacing the drivetrain and wheels before long).

The guards are usually held in place by one or two 3/8" screws and not hard to remove. You may need to remove the blade and then reinstall and turn the blade to get the belt onto the pulley. Disconnect the spark plug first and always have the gas tank half empty and in the upward position when you turn the mower on its side.

For anyone needing some help replacing the Toro Personal Pace belt the attached link should help. Although I found it impossible to slip the belt between the rear pulley bracket and the pulley even with the front belt guard removed. Instead, I removed the wheels and the spring attached to the pulley bracket, turned the axle, removed the pulley bracket, replaced the belt and put everything back together. Took some doing but it works fine.

Great link, but here's one more question, does anybody know the belt measurements for the Toro 20332, p/n 115-4669, I know it 3/8 wide, but not sure of the length, can't find anything on the web, even called my local mower shop & they didn't have a cross for it. Thanks
