Question about Garden
Did it work right after you changed battery? It sounds like your regulator/rectifier isn't recharging your battery. When the battery isn't charging properly the pto wont work for long. If you have a multimeter, hook it up to battery while unit is running and check voltage on battery. When idle is high you should see more charge and vice versa. Please exercise caution when doing this. Hope this helps.

you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor

there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens

you may hav a bad alt. problem with the mower dying when you engage the pto is most likley a bad sensor or wire unplugged on the seat sensor.the way it works is if the blades are turning and it dosent sense you being on the seat the mower shuts down.this has been standard on mowers for quite a few years now. it keeps the blades from cutting you up if you fall off the seat while mowing. as for charging i would try cleaning the battery connections and get the battery checked first.

There is a idler pivot plate on the mower that must be cleaned and lubricated regularly, from the left side of the mower deck if you look in the middle of the mower deck while someone engages the mower(with the engine off) you will see the pulley try and move,there is a 3/8 bolt that comes up through a bushing that this pivots on, soak that area with wd-40 and see if that improves the movement. Be sure not to get any wd-40 on the belt or pulleys. Always try and keep that area clean and lubed.
