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

You must be in the seat to run the mower ... safety interlocks ... operator presence control is what it is called.

SOURCE: john deere 2010 tractor. pto grinds and wont engage

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.

SOURCE: Battery lite glows when pto is engaged after running for 5min

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.

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

Jd 3020 power shift pto turns all the time. if lever not engaged a heavy load can stop it. otherwise it works ok


The pto brake is either worn out or you have no presure to it when the pto is turned off,most likely the pto brake is worn out.

Engine dies when engaging PTO switch on a John Deere GT235. I have replaced the seat switch and the PTO switch.


Check and adjust your RIO switch{reverse implement option}near the trans if so equipped.What happens when you press forward pedal then engage blades?Would also check the lower bearing on your pto clutch to see if its seized up.
