SOURCE: The deck blades stop turning in reverse unless switch is pulled.

This is a safety feature that is not that hard to do so i say live with it.You do'nt have to hold it up just pull it up before you start backing up and once your moveing you can let go without it shutting off the deck until the pedel returns to neutral again,all tractor have it by law after a certain date so jumping around it is niot a good idea.

SOURCE: cutting blades won't disengage

Check you blades to see if one is bent. Do this with the mower NOT RUNNING and the KEY OUT of THE IGNITION! Look under the deck to see if one is bent. This will cause the wobble. As far as no disengaging your electric clutch could be bad. The bearing could have seized up.

My new 10.5 HP 30in. Troybilt riding mower just quit running after trying to go in reverse and forgetting to disengage blades.Cannot get it restarted for anything. Help?


One or more safety switches are not working. Engine off, put it in neutral, disengage the blades. Now sit on it, and try to start it. If that doesn't start the engine then take a multi meter and check for continuity on all the switch locations.

Hi...I have a 2005 Cub Cadet 2042. With the switch in ''normal'' and the PTO engaged, when going forward cutting the grass the PTO will disengage for no apparent reason. You have to push the PTO knob in...


In the cub cadet, the PTO power is maintained via a latching circuit that includes a reverse switch and a reverse relay. Locate the reverse switch that senses whether the tractor is in reverse -- either it's come loose, become misadjusted, or it's failed, or the wiring and connections are loose. You could bypass the switch to confirm this as the problem.

Cub Cadet 2166 series. Mower will not engage.


Unfortunately, the circuit is a little complicated - it involves the "PTO switch" (the switch you pull on to engage the mower), a "reverse switch" that senses if you've put the mower in reverse, and a relay operated by the reverse switch. The reverse switch is there to disengage the blades if you try to reverse while mowing. A failure in any of those items, or the connectors and wiring between them, will prevent the blades from engaging. Unless you want to "shotgun it" and replace parts one-by-one on a guess (which many repairmen to do save time, but at your expense) you need to use an ohmmeter or test light to trace and isolate where the failure is.

I have a Kraftsman 91.5 42 inch cut model #


Safety switch at seat or reverse. Mower will cut of when blades are engaged if you get off the seat or put into reverse. Check these switches for stuck on, damaged, disconnected, or just plain broke. Good luck.

Blades run in reverse and only for a short distance going forward


ok when was the last time you had the hydrolic fluid changed ?
or the oil for that mater ?
oil breaks down
you wouldnt cook your french fries in year old oil but you will cook your tranny with it in a cub or mtd machine 100-120 hours max for the fluids in an mtd b4 they start to loose texture or viscosity ( sound it out)
hydro pumps di die mtd has 1 monster that is quite expensive also have you changed the filter on the rear axcel lately or is it full of nut butter and in bypass mode
100 hours doesnt seam like much but for a tractor it is

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
