toro mower

Jon asked 6 years ago

I have a Toro 26682 lawn mower with the Suzuki engine. The mower idles fine until you engage the blade. I can only fill the bag about half way before it starts clogging. Any ideas?

You state that it idles fine until the blade is engaged, what does it do then. Does it run at high speed when the blade is engaged? A couple of things will affect bagging performance. Is the engine running at the correct speed and preforming properly, is the blade the correct type, is it sharp and installed correctly AND is the bag CLEAN. You should be able to see light thru the bag. It’s best to wash it well and let it dry. If all of the above is met, then you should have no problem bagging.
