Noisey Cub Cadet mower

I have a model 1554 cub cadet. When I engage the PTO it is extremely loud. Could it be a clutch problem or possibly pulley bearings. The deck was cleaned and the underside was painted over the winter. I thoght it might be the blades but just installed brand new cub cadet blades and still have the same loud noise.

If the noise is coming from the deck, locate the idle pulley on the deck. there should be 1 or 2 rubber "bumpers" at the opposite end of the pulley arm where it meets the "j" pin. If they are missing, it will make a loud metal to metal sound.

Zero force 50 Cub Cadet runs fine , but when the mower deck switch is pulled , blades do not turn, does not engage


This would be one of a few different things, first check to make sure the belt is on properly and hasnt came off any pulleys, next check the clutch relay and fuse, next check the pto switch, and if all those check out, check the clutch for engagement, if it tries to engage with pto switch, then it may just need adjusted, if it doesn't try to engage, the clutch will need replaced, but check the other possible causes first.

The blades run all the time on my cub cadet 1042, even if the PTO is off


If your cub has an electric pto clutch it may be fused. Or the switch is stuck on. You can check the switch with multitester to see if its energized all the time. If not the clutch is probably fused. Which is cause for replacement. Adjustment only works with clutches that wont engage.

If you pto is mechanically engaged look for obstructions in the lever pathway. Also check for stuck idler pulleys.

Be careful and good luck!

Pto blows the fuse everytime i engage it on my rzt 50 cub cadet mower.


Wire harness for the PTO on the RZT's is designed dangerously near the drive pulley. After time, the harness drops and comes in contact with the pulley which grinds through the coating and shorts out the circuit. Repair (tape up) the wiring, relocate the the wire to the opposite side of the crank pulley (may have to zip-tie in place) - shouldn't be a problem anymore.

Cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged


Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Check your mower deck spindles and belt. If belt is slipping at all the PTO will not engage.

Engine stalls when electric PTO clutch is engaged


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
