Trouble with Toro Grandstand....

Hello All. My first post here I have been reading some posts and yes I did a search for my problem but found nothing. I have a Toro Grandstand that will not move at all. Not sure what is going on with it. The hydraulic level is good. I will take any ideas and opinions on whet it might be. I am a capable mechanic but know nothing about hydraulics but always willing to learn. I have not really tried anything yet to fix the problem, really dont know where to start. Thanks All.

If it just stopped suddenly, I'd check the belt that operates the hydro pumps.

Idler may have loosened or the belt could have come off.

Imagine that!!! It's the second time I've been right this year so you're the one of the lucky guys. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while. Happy to help out.

By the way, which was it? Broken belt, belt off or idler loosened up?

Did it do it while you were mowing with it, and what is the model and serial number?

I believe it came off when they were loading it. It did not happen to me. But they have been using it all week and I havent heard anything from them good or bad. I suppose if anything bad happened it would be setting out there for me to work on again. lol

These guys that work here have the tires worn down far enough that it still goes just fine with the P brake on. LOL Terrible to say I know, but its true.

Guess I should have stated in my first post that I am working on equipment for a lawn service, it is not my equipment. These lawn service guys are hard on everything.
