    I have a toro 52 in. Belt driven w/b w/t T Bar .
    I had it serviced last year an still have a hard time getting a straight line out of it.
    It likes to dart from side to side. I bought it used and haven't use it a whole lot. I couldn't get it to work right so I bought a Exmark TT52 Are business is growing fast and i would like to use this mower.
    I don't know how close i need to adjust the forward - neutral - break.
    Thanks, Rene

    Get on Toro's website - all of their owners manuals are down loadable. Sounds like you just need to adjust the drive linkages

    It may also be the drive belts.They stretch over time.especially if your pulling a sulkie.

    There isn't much to check on these belt drives and brakes. They are very simplistic machines. Make sure the belts are equally adjusted and they aren't too loose. Also a good idea to make sure the brakes are adjusted per the manual.
