Sounds like a problem with the governor. Start it up. Don't engage the blades. Drive to a hill. Idle all the way down. Try driving up the hill. The motor should pick up when it slows while pulling up the hill. If it doesn't, the governor isn't working right.

SOURCE: DTY 4000 tractor dies when engaging pto, new

Hi,
This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

SOURCE: 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

I have a John deereL130, deck rusted so I got one from a JD L100 it has a manual pto lever to engage, but my L130 is electric pto.it mounted easily,do I need to add tensioners to deck for it to work


On the electric clutch method the belt from the engine pulley to the deck pulley is tight all the time, yes it normally has a idler pulley with a spring to keep it tight. The spring is needed so do not omit it and lock it solid or it will shake itself apart. Hopefully you can copy your L130 deck as well as use the idler and spring from it.

The electrical is part of the PTO clutch assembly. It should only draw 5-7 amps. Ohm reading is somewhere between 1.7 to 2.5 ohms.

These coils do short from anywhere from a partial short to completely.

First. My disclaimer. I do not have first hand experience with your model mower.

Well, it sounds like when you engage the PTO the power to the PTO shorts to ground causing a) your charge light to come on as the voltage drops substantially and b) your mower to stall as the minimum voltage of the ingnition system is reached (or some other effect is at work). The clutch is might be internally shorted, or you may have a frayed wire in the PTO circuit. You may or may not have a PTO relay. If you do, it is sure to burn up if you continue using your mower. If you do not have a relay, you will definitely burn out the PTO switch. It is odd you are not blowing an inline fuse if this is the correct answer. Check your PTO circuit with a continuity tester to tell you if there is a short (or measure resistance directly with a voltmeter on ohms).

Replaced belt for mower thought i put it all back correctly blades engage when key is turned engage lever to off what did i do wrong


If you look at the motor pulley area, there should be two different pulleys with a PTO clutch between them. The PTO clutch has wires going to it, because it is operated electrically by the blade engage switch.
It sounds like you could have accidentally put the mower deck belt onto the main drive pulley (which turns all the time) rather than the pulley that is farther out from the engine, which only turns when the engage the blade switch. If so, just loosen the mower belt and move it to the right pulley.
Good luck!

check your spacers to be sure you havent locked the clutch assembly directly to the motor shaft
you should be able to turn it fairly free less some clutch drag
