SOURCE: I have a Cub Cadet RZT 50 mower. The left drive

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.

If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.

If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!

Why won't my mower mow? Replaced the clutch & pto switch on cc rzt 50 still won't mow

May have a safety switch problem. Check brake controls, or look for other safety switches. Check for voltage at clutch. Do so with engine off and seating on seat, turn on key to run position and engage blade switch, should hear clutch engage. If it doesn't then check for voltage at clutch and if no voltage work your way back from there. Follow wires back until you find your problem.

New pto switch stoped working after 4 mowings

Maybe the problem wasn't the PTO switch. My Cub Cadet RZT PTO would disengage when I backed up and then failed to re-engage. I was able to isolate my problem to the safety switches at the base of the steering levers. I sprayed them with WD40 and they've been fine. Just a thought and worth checking. I hope this helps.

Why when riding along mowing and the blades just quit turning, belt is not off?

If you hit a bump too hard, I believe it's equipped with a shock sensor that shuts down the blades or if you slightly lift off the seat the blades will shut off. If this is the case simply stop and restart the blade switch. Hope this helps

The mower deck on our Cub Cadet RZT 50 mower stopped working while mowing. We have cycled the PTO switch several times with no change. The belt is in place and the mower blades rotate freely by hand. The...

You can check the clutch by taking a wire from the ground and a wire from the positive side of the battery and energizing the clutch directly with the belt off to see if thats it. It could simply be a wire loose in the connection on the clutch....their soldered on.
