If you have a Toucan machine that will not drive even though the pump runs, check the brake release valve on the back of the machine. This valve, if bumped accidentally, can cause a no-drive situation, but adjusting the valve can correct the problem.
This short video, taken from the Toucan operator safety video, explains how to properly engage and disengage the brake release valve.
