SOURCE: toro timecutter spits and sputters when blades are engaged

Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done

If you are jumping the solenoid and it cranks but wont start leave the key in the on position and give it a try. Try replacing the solenoid and the wires conecting it to the battery.

SOURCE: have a cub zero turn 52 inch cut the blades wont

sounds like one of three possible problems ....one - there are safety switches that prevent engagement of the blades,,,,,two - the electric switch which engages the electric clutch blade pulley is bad....or three - the electric clutch blade pulley assembly is bad.....first.....make sure all ur connections are tight to the safety switches and electric clutchblade pulley.....then, if your able to read and follow a wiring diagram, get the wiring diagram for your tractor and a 12 volt probe light (with probe point end) with a ground lead....first, ground the clamp end to the frame and probe at the electric pulley clutch plug to see if power is getting there...if not...follow the wiring diagram to the next switch location the power lead comes from....if one side of the swtich shows power and the other side doesn't with the switch in the correct run position....then the switch or connection is bad.....if it probes okay...go to the next switch....follow this logic from both sides of the from the electric pulley blade clutch plug until you isolate the switch or plug problem....if everythin tested is good....then it's the electric clutch pulley assembly that need replacing.....hope this helps.....

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

SOURCE: blade not engaging

The blade will spin automatically when the motor runs because it is connected to the main shaft. If it is not cutting, it will have to be removed and sharpened with a grinding wheel

Blades won't engage on my toro ss 5000 zero turn mower


for any ride on machine that the blades don't engage id start at looking at occupancy seat switch , these are most times the culprits then if that's ok I move on to the actual engage switch and then on to clutch as last element

don't forget that past 2013 mfg machines operator must be in seat and weight over 80 lbs , the clutch pedal must be depressed and transmission not in reverse to engage the blades on a consumer grade lawn tractor (thank the CSB for that )

check whatever engages your mower blades. If it has a lever that you lift into place to engage blades try wiggling it while turning the key

White smoke and blade won't engage


Sounds like a low compression problem. The piston rings have most likely failed and oil is seeping past them and burning, thus the white smoke. An engine needs three things to run...Spark, Compression, and Fuel. Just take the mower back as it is still probably under warranty. Mike. Rate 100% please.

Have wheel horse riding lawnmower that will not engage the blades


Take a look underneath, either the belt has stretched too much and its too long now or it has broke or fallen off. It could be that one of the pulleys have become frozen but you should hear squealing or the engine might stall. Good luck.
