I have a toro 21" sp recycler lawnmower. It is a fine machine and we have had it for many years. The model # is 20219. It seems like the throttle speed is too low. I have read the manual and it states " when the throttle is adjusted the holes must be aligned in the throttle bracket and throttle lever" I have done this but no increase in speed is realized. How can I adjust the throttle speed.

Hello: farhhampa

Maximum top speed {RPM} of any single cyclinder gasoline engine is 3600 Revolutions Per Minute. Above that speed the engine will only last a few hours at most prior to self distruction.

I tossed that in first because it's both a warning and advice. Without a tachometer there isn't any real way of knowing the true engine RPM's.

Therefore, it may seem and sound like the engine is running slow but in reality not be. I do not reccommend attempting to raise the engines RPM's nor adjusting the cable or linkage out of the manufacturers settings without a tachometer, even slightly faster.

My best advice for your personal safety and the life of the enigne is to have the engine speed checked and adjusted by a professional at a lawn mower shop.

Please understand that I have seen plenty of expensive power equipment completely distroyed by overspeeding the engine. I would not want this to happen to yours.

Good Luck,

Bare in mind my company no longer services nor repairs lawn and garden powered equipment. Rest assured and fully confident, the help I offer you is based upon my prior years in this industry, with this type of equipment and is specific and accurate to the best of my knowledge...
