HELP! Toro GTS 2 450!!!!!

Hey everyone I have an older Toro pushmower. It is a Toro GTS 2 450. I used strong tape to keep the handle steady to keep the blades always going. Anyways, how do you turn the mower off? Is there a switch somewhere on the engine?

Pull the spark plug wire.

Really?

You should never bypass the dead man switch of the mower to begin with. If you do not know where the spark plug is then you definitely should not bypass a safety device.

My advise is to call 911.
