Some saws don't have a blade brake , i always take a pair of vise grips and adjust to grip blade tightly and hold or bind against housing then remove bolts works well for me

Why does my riding mower die when put in gear or engage the blades


Check out the grass box safety switch. if not fully depressed it will apply brakes to the blades when in gear. Most mowers are designed with a safety switch to stop the blades, or forward motion if the grass box is not fitted correctly.

What would cause the PTO not to disengaged the blades from turning?


A faulty switch if the blades are spinning at full cutting speed
Not cutting the current to the engaged blade clutch so the blades are stil on even when the switch is in the off position.
The blade brakes not gripping the pulleys fully to stop blades so anything brushing against the blade will start them spinning
Or the clutch medium is damaged and is not releasing the blades fully so they spin but slowly when you switch the switch they just slow down get the deck alignment switch for clutch and the wireing to the blades system checked and the braking system for the blades pulleys checked as soon as possible the machine is dangerous
With the blade continuously rotating you risk injury from the blades catching.g you or someone else who's not aware the blades don't stop.etcetera.

Did not press the RIO when going in reverse with the blades engaged. The motor stopped for safety reasons. Now I cannot get the mower started. Any ideas?


What model machine, and are blades engaged by flicking a switch or by actuating a lever.
BUT .... did you place machine in neutral, apply parking brake and disengage blade PTO before trying to re-start ?? Machine's safety system needs to be satisfied that the machine is safe to re-start.

Blade brake dosen't work right away when switch is released. Takes a couple seconds of slow spin then the brake seems to stop the brake. Suggestions?


All blade brakes take a moment to stop the blade. If it were to engage as soon as the switch were released the inertia of the blade would do damage to the saw. Look at videos of your saw on youtube to ensure it is operating the same as others.

Bolt that holds blade well not loosen what is the correct direction to loosen bolt


Remember that on a circular saw, the bolts are typically left-handed thread so it is the opposite of a typical bolt. This is because the blade spins to the right so if a normal bolt was used it would loosen as the saw operates.

Every time I use the lever to get the blades started it kills the engine. it does it even after i removed the belt. what is causing the blade rotation lever to kill the engine?


hi there talane

sounds like you have a safety switch problem

try disconnecting seat switch and retry if works could be wire grounding some where or faulty switch then try fitting a jump wire to seat switch wire connector then retry then check blade engagement switch may be playing up or a nuetral switch playing up but more likely a seat switch

with operator off seat and park brake on engine runs, but with pk brake off and operator off seat
engine stops , same if operator leaves seat and blades engages -engine stops,

if unit not in nuetral and pk brake not on unit wont start


take look

hope it helps

My Craftsman 7&1/4 inch 12 amp Circular Saw(Model 315.108330) slips while cutting. The motor keeps spinning but the saw stops rotating. Can I Fix it?


Most circular 7-1/4 saws have a bolt and a compression washer that acts as a brake shoe that holds the blade secure but under dire circumstances will allow the blade to slip some rather than hold the motor shaft and allow burn out. The compression washer under your bolt has become worn and doesn't grip the blade securely. You can find a split washer that will fit under the blade and give you some more friction, or go to sears and order another compression washer for your saw.In the Sears Parts List found at: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Craftsman-Parts/Saw-Parts/Model-32018780/0247/0744410/50035950/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

see part no. 44

Cannot tighten blade on old craftsman circular saw.bolt turns blade shaft and motor without tighting blade


Is the washer/spacer in the blade too thick and you are perhaps tightening up on that instead of the blade. Also check the threads on the bolt, see if the bolt turns all the way in without the blade in position. It may be jamming up before gripping the blade.
