Question about Garden
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.

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

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

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.
