Re: Toro Greensmaster & Greensmaster Flex Resources

I finally managed to level the bedknife to the drum, however, I don't think the manual is very informative on this issue. As far as I can tell, there is little play in both maximum and minimum height of the drum on either side. The manual says to loosen the retaining screws on the right side and the...

The top adjusting bolts on each roller bracket need to be turned to adjust the height up or down. Then the locking bolts on the sides are tightened back up to hold the roller in place.
Apologies, I should have specified the rear roller! I’ve edited original.

Re: Toro Greensmaster & Greensmaster Flex Resources

I’m looking at adjusting rear roller height. I’ve loosened the 4 bolts as the manual suggests and then it just says to lower or raise. What am I expecting here? The roller just seems to wobble around within the confines of the loose bolts. Just pushing upwards, I can’t raise it even the slight amoun...

Re: Toro Greensmaster & Greensmaster Flex Resources

Reel is cutting better on one side vs the other. I've finally got around to properly testing bedknife to roller parallelity. The rear roller is about 0.1" off from level on the right side whilst the front roller is about 0.1" off level on the left side. I guess the HOC adjustment "corrects" for the...

Re: Toro Greensmaster & Greensmaster Flex Resources

I’m wondering what people find regarding grass distribution in the catcher? Mine tends to pile up on one side. I’ve adjusted the grass shield and cutoff bar (which is currently about 1 mm away from the reel) and that’s helped a little but it’s still not great. Is this normal or is there something el...

Re: New reel "straightness"

Did you get all new bearings/rings and repack them or did you reuse all the rings and such? Yes, everything was new, but it was the first time so I was wondering whether something was slightly out. I’ll have a go at measuring circumference. My main concern is that the difference would be so minor i...

@mowww Thanks for the reply. I was thinking about tearing it apart and redoing the bearings but I’ll give the grind a go! :thumbup:

New reel "straightness"

A while ago I replaced the reel and knife on my mower and something has been off since but I can't put my finger on what it is exactly or how to fix it. The issue is probably best explained when I try backlapping. If there was equal contact between reel and knife then you should expect a constant gr...

Re: Uneven reel cut

It should work with any drum. The front sits on the bedbar and the rear prongs on the drum. If the orientation is off they’ll be a gap below one prong and the drum.

Re: Uneven reel cut

If something isn't straight on your mower, every pass will produce exactly the same error. The pictures show an uneven pattern with some parts higher and some parts lower and others showing no noticeable problem. It would only take a small undulation in the ground to slightly lift one side of the mo...

Re: Weed ID Thread - What is it and how do I kill it?

Can bahia have a third seedhead occasionally instead of the usual two?

Re: TifTuf lateral growth - 1 month

Not sure on the best way to make sprigs, but something like a verticutter run over a loose piece of turf might be enough to break it up sufficiently. Any way of removing the connecting soil should work ie power water spray, soaking in water, sticking it in a soil tumbler to get knocked around, letti...

Re: TifTuf lateral growth - 1 month

I seriously doubt it’s too late to pull up the sod and try sprigging. It will probably roll right back up with a bit of effort, otherwise, a flat spade slid underneath will help.

Re: Some annuals mysteriously dying

Watering is normally once or twice a week and they’re in full sun. Don’t see any grubs. The die off started during the dry spell. I tried replacing the first one to go and that got taken out quickly. I’ll give the fungicide a go but I have a feeling it’s probably wilt :(. Edit: looking at the suscep...

Some annuals mysteriously dying

Last year, I had what I think were called tricolored bells, they just started shriveling up and dying after doing well. This year I used petunias. They’ve been good for about a month or more, spreading well, but a couple have started the same problem. I’m thinking something is attacking the roots bu...

How do I jam it against the bedbar???
I adjusted the height of mine to the lowest position, which did the job.

Re: Toro Greensmaster & Greensmaster Flex Resources

@ctrav The rear end of the grass shield will vibrate like crazy if it’s not jammed against the bedbar.

Re: Chapin 97900 24V Push Sprayer

Changing the drain position is certainly a very good step, although it should be at the front of the tank seeing as you tilt it forwards, but how do you empty it now when cleaning?

Also, how is the drain attached? It's obviously not a bulkhead fitting anymore.
