My lawn mower is not picking up grass!

Check that the grass collector is correctly attached and assembled. If your grass collect is a fabric one check for dry grass or debris stuck to the inside. Use a hard bristled brush and give the inside a brush – air needs to circulate through the fibres to maximise grass pick up.

Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
Why doesn`t my lawn tractor discharge grass properly? The underlying cause for improper grass discharge is lack of airflow through the deck. WET GRASS: Wet grass is heavy and the available air flow from a properly functioning mower is not sufficient to throw the wet clippings out of the deck.
As with most gas-powered lawn mowers, hold down the handlebar and pull the cord. Then pull up on the drive lever to engage the drive system. For a battery-powered motor, push the start button and pull on the handle to start moving forward.

Why my blade wont engage on my toro 74370 zeroturn mower
