Check for build up around blades. But it sound as your fuel bowel is clogged or your carb needs cleaning.

SOURCE: motor stops when the pto or cutting blades are turned on or engaged.

you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: mower will not drive

Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.

SOURCE: Mower wants to stall when blades are engaged

Usually when the motor stalls when blades are engaged on any mower it is the carb that needs cleaned and rebuilt. The motor isn't getting enough gas to handle the load.

SOURCE: i have a bolens 38 inch riding mower. it cranked

did you try depressing the clutch to disengage everything regardless of being in neutral? and it sounds like a pulley bearing went bad.try to spin the pulley with your hand and see if it moves.take the belt off to the mower deck and that should keep them from turning when you go to start it.

I have an 18"hp MDT


Hi, there are two safety switches on your mower, one on the seat and one on the reverse position of the gear lever. One of these will be shorted and faulty. Locate these switches and bypass them one at a time by removing the wires from the spade connectors until your mower runs with the blades engaged. Then replace the faulty switch. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a husqvarna 172 ride-on lawnmower. Running


This unit probably has a safety switch built into it and it could be below the gas tank. If this switch isn't adjusted properly then it's designed to cut off the motor. I think you should concentrate on that before attempting anything else.
