Have a cub cadet 50 inch cut zero turn, after cutting grass for 30 min or so it acts like wants to die but if I shut the PTO off it catches up but will start to die if I reengage the blades. starts a

When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

I just bought a 775ex walk behind that was repaired. I filled it with gas and ran it for a few mins. to try it out and it ran fine. A few hours later I smelled gas in my garage and found the mower's tank...

There could be a couple problems. 1 the fuel tank may have a leak.
2. The connection(usually a hose) between the fuel tank and the carburetor could be cracked or faulty
3. There could also be a bad seal in the carburetor that is letting the gas leak out.
check those out first. I would put some gas in it and then see where it comes from.

I have a self propelled Toro walk behind that does not have a throttle control. Stalls out if grass is just a bit high. How/ where do I adjust throttle

Most new mowers do not have a throttle adjustment, the motor has a govnor that helps the motor speed up when the load requires it. The first thing you should check is that the blade is sharp which makes it easier to cut the grass. If the grass is still too high for the motor to keep up, it's usually easier to raise the deck (lower the wheels) so you are not cutting as much grass on each pass. Then lower the deck to where you want the grass height to be and make a second pass.

Quit running while cutting the grass. Notice gas coming out of the exhaust when trying to crank

Just as Alaska bratt says check your carb. I had gas leaking into the oil and the entire engine was destroyed. Gas dilutes the oil and then there is no lubrication. FYI don't be worried about gas/fire as the gas is also diluted and is not very flammable, with gas it is the fumes that are highly flammable. I recommend rebuilding the carb draining the engine oil and keep your fingers crossed that you didn't damage the piston/sleeve/cylinder.

Is this the first time cutting grass with a lawn tractor?
How tall of grass?
Use the grass cutting heigth adjustments on the tractor to a higher setting when cutting tall grass. Cut again to a lower height setting on the second pass. Grass higher than your tractor is not good for your tractor. Follow the manual instructions for best results.
