Open Question

Craftsman ZTS 7500, center blade cuts but outside blades do not.

I can manually turn the blades on the outside but center blade doesn't, if I turn the center blade manually then all blades turn. under power only the center blade cuts. Is the center hub broken or stripped maybe?

SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the

craftsman decks have a positive stop adjustment for the decks. A spring atached to the blade ingadgement arm pulls the tension pully into position if the cable is rusted inside the sleeve it wont put enough pull on the ingadgment pully and thus the blades dont spin full force the belts on the mowers have no adjustments only the pully . second thing is you may want to drop the deck and clean around that pully by scraping any rust off the surface under the pullys slide good luck

i going to assume that yr tractor does have the hydrolic p.t.o. that controls the drive and cutting mechanism's???... if so you might start with checking the hydrolic fluid in the resevior. or you might check into replacing the hydrolic p.t.o. pump , if you ran the tractor in heavy work without any hydrolic fluid in the p.t.o. pump the pump is probably burnt up. if so im sure you can beat the cost of a new pump by rebuilding it yrself with a kit.

You may be running too fast on ground speed for the mower deck to cut completely. It may be time for some new blades. The blades may be worn down to where they are shorter than when they were first put on.

Craftsman ZTS 7500 dies when engage blades or when engage transmission


check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck

It leaves the center uncut


i think i would raise the whole thing up on jack stands and take a look at the bottom of the deck. do not start it of course, but the problem should be evident. 42 inch generally means only 2 blades which are cutting on the outside leaving you a mohawk. so something is blocking the grass from being cut in the center. if it is by chance a 3 blade deck , then something is wrong with the center blade, if it is there i would guess a broken key.

My craftsman zts 7500 will not start. The battery is charged, but turning the key does nothing.


The problem may be one of the safety switches. Make sure the blades are not engaged. The clutch pedal needs to be pushed all the way down, and there is another one that needs weight on the seat. Look around those areas for disconnected wires. Some even need to be in neutral. Lots of safety features.

The PTO switch contacts to operate the clutch that starts the blades is defective. I have replaced mine and the new one just failed again. Sears must know this is a defect problem but so far they are quiet about the problem

Craftsman zts 7500 will not run with levers engaged


Cody,
Yes, I am sitting when I do engage the blades on my craftsman zts 7500. All you do is pull/push the engaged button to your left well you are seated.
