The engine in this machine seems to be powerful. If you can remove the belt from the pulley that drives the blade. Try turning the pulley buy hand. If it turns tight or not at all this is your problem. The unit that is the pulley to blade assembly is seized or ready to seize. Sometimes they are designed to be taken apart and repaired, and sometimes they are not. Did you check for a grease fitting within the pulley to blade unit?
I would like to hear how this works out for you. Best of luck.

Got a new cub cadet cc 720 es when I engage the drive belts it makes a squeak/rattle noise from the front deck, took off the top and can not seems to pinpoint the source of the noise.


A lot of hydrostatic rotary mowers squeal when u engage the PTO (blades) even when properly maintained or even factory new ev like the toro groundsmaster which is top of the line in its style of mowers. At the shop at work we think it's due to a change in the angle of stress from the floating deck. Nothing to worry about. Just make sure that you completely drop the deck before you engage the blade drive.

I have a Craftsman YS4500 that when I engage the blades the start spinning slowly and kills the engine.


Assuming any belt changes were correct..check the path of the belt to make sure it's not pinched in the guides..and with the blades disengaged and the engine off..that one of your blade hubs isn't seized up.its normal to slow the engine during engagement but not stall at medium rpm.

My countax C300H starts OK but when I engage the cutters it immediately cuts out. If I let the engine run for 10 minutes then engage the cutters they usually work ok but this is pretty annoying. Is there...


Just got one of these mowers myself - accidentally got a large stone caught in the blades which caused the same problem. It looked to me that there's a sensor on the flywheel that cuts the motor if the blades aren't rotating freely. You might find either that the sensor is broken (check it by pulling off the connectors and connecting them together) or that the blades aren't rotating for some reason.

Blade won't stay engauged


It is very hard to say without knowing model, but if it is a Honda Harmony than I would look towards the the cable that controls the blade engagement. If your model is equipped with a blade engagement lever most likely yours is controlled by a cable also and it only needs to be adjusted correctly. Good luck!

Stops running after 2 minuets


Honda engines have an oil sensor that sometimes fails. It will cause this. If the sensor fails it is like not having enough oil and will kill the engine for protection. Just something to look into. Hope this helps
