PTO will not stay engaged

2006 Troy-bilt Super Bronco Riding Mower.(60TG). First time using this mower.Starts and runs fine. Cutting blades will only stay working if you continue holding PTO lever forward in the engaged position. If you let go of the PTO lever it returns to a neutral position and blades quit , but mower remains running.

SOURCE: PTO will not engage blades on riding mower. The

Using a test light or volt meter, check to see if you are getting a full 12 volts at the connector where the PTO plugs in. If no voltage present, locate the fuse for the PTO and check it, also check the PTO switch to see if it is working. You can turn on the ignition switch to the run position, don't start the engine, and turn the PTO switch on and off several times listening for a clicking sound. If you hear it clicking, have someone sit in the seat and start up the engine, while it is running, observe the PTO clutch and see if it spins when turned on and if the belt turns with it. If none of this works, post a follow up and include your Craftsman Model number. I will look it up and see if I can find anything else we might be missing

SOURCE: I own a 42" Troy Bilt zero turn. The PTO switch

What the problem is (im not sure if they are called this) but the deck pulley brakes are worn out.
Basically if you look under the rider frame side (on top of the deck). There are on each side for each spindle pulley a flat metal tab. On the underside of that is just like a brake on your car. So when you raise the deck the pulley brakes hit the top of the pulleys and stop them from spinning. Which cause the blades to stop spinnign. There are probably turning at 10% of there normal speed. If that sound like what its doing check the brakes.
They are a replaceable part. Sorry I just cant remember exactly what they are called. Over the years they just wear out like a set of brake pads on your car. And the mower cuts and just work fine. Thats where I would start. When they wear out, the friction material is gone. Best Reguards, Premium FixYa Support

SOURCE: I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting

There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Troy Bilt model 60TG I hit a small piece of wood and the tractor


If you haven't already, check to see if there is a hunk of wood wedged between the blade(s) and mower deck. I've seen that happen. I pried the hunk of wood out with a crowbar and life was good again. The second time, someone ran over a campfire log they didn't see under leaves last fall and bent the blade spindle. It basically froze the spindle in place even though there wasn't anything wedged in there. I removed the belt from the top of the mower deck and then it started just fine..... although the blades and shaft were toast and had to be replaced. If you can disengage the mower deck without removing the belt(s), try it if you haven't already. See if it starts that way. If not, the issue may be more serious such as a broken connecting rod in the engine. Try the simple stuff above first to troubleshoot the cause.
