Go to partstree.com and they should have wiring diagrams for your mower, should be a switch or something if the clutch works when you hook it to a battery (seat switch, pto switch, parking brake switch, even the neutral safety switches) also check your ground hook ups

SOURCE: I can not get my mower deck to turn when I pull

Your switch could be bad, or the voltage needed to turn on the PTO may not be up to par, or you may have a safety switch that won't let you start the PTO. I'd start with the safety switches.

SOURCE: Cub Cadet-Blades won't stay engaged

sounds like either a saftey switch problem or a bad drive clutch on the pto. usuallly the mower shuts down,not the blades, they may have changed this though. my best guess would be a safety sensor try calling your local cub dealer and talking to the repair person he can shed light on the problem.

My pto is on all the time on my Toro zero turn. Blades are engaged when I start the engine even though the switch is in the off position? What would cause this?


Haven't had your particular problem, but my my blades would not turn when I pulled the PTO control knob. Turned out to be a bad PTO switch. Mechanic replaced the switch and it worked fine thereafter.

After reverse, my cub cadet zero turn mower pto will not re engage the blades. sporadic up to the point of stopping altogether. is it the switch or clutch?


I would guess it is the switch. My Cub Cadet has a safety feature where the blades (PTO) stop when you hit reverse. There is an override where you turn the key back about a quarter turn or so and hit a button right above the key to make the blades run even in reverse. Therefore, I would guess the ignition switch is the problem but I can't be certain. Or it could be the electric switch that engages the PTO.

Zero force 50 Cub Cadet runs fine , but when the mower deck switch is pulled , blades do not turn, does not engage


This would be one of a few different things, first check to make sure the belt is on properly and hasnt came off any pulleys, next check the clutch relay and fuse, next check the pto switch, and if all those check out, check the clutch for engagement, if it tries to engage with pto switch, then it may just need adjusted, if it doesn't try to engage, the clutch will need replaced, but check the other possible causes first.

The blades run all the time on my cub cadet 1042, even if the PTO is off


If your cub has an electric pto clutch it may be fused. Or the switch is stuck on. You can check the switch with multitester to see if its energized all the time. If not the clutch is probably fused. Which is cause for replacement. Adjustment only works with clutches that wont engage.

If you pto is mechanically engaged look for obstructions in the lever pathway. Also check for stuck idler pulleys.

Be careful and good luck!

I HAVE A CUB CADET 50 INCH CUT ZERO TURN, WHEN YOU PULL THE PTO SWITCH TO ENGAGE THE BLADES THE BATTERY WILL DISCHARGE.


Most likely a short. You have to look in the area where engage switch gets blades going. You will find a cut wire or wires that are touching metal. This will kill a battery very quick. Fix wire , tie up wire so this doesn't happen again, and off you go. GOOD LUCK.

Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage


I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.
