Question about John Deere Garden
Runs fine and pto worked before being left out in recent heavy rain. Will not engage now
Probably the pto switch. Find the 2 wire 'T' plug from the PTO clutch and disconnect. With a voltmeter across the the 2 spades on the tractor side of the plug you should get 12 volts DC with the PTO switch on ( you may need to sit in the seat ). If you get 12 volts at the plug its probably the PTO clutch. If no power then its a fuse or the PTO switch

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

The charging circuits used on smaller tractors are generally barely adequate for the load presented to them, so it is important that the tractor engine is running fast enough especially when using PTO power. If your tractor has a tachometer on it, JD has an indication of the motor speed you should use when using the PTO. If not, it is generally pretty close to max. It should sound like it is running smoothly although fast, and not with whining or rough sounds from the engine.
