The switch located under the seat is NORMALLY the cause of this problem. Disconnect it, trip it out with a jumper wire and then with the clutch lock in, try and start it. If it starts the switch is bad. If it doesn't, Plug it back in and then go to the clutch switch and do the same. Being it shuts off when you pull the blade engagement switch I think its your seat switch, but don't hold me to that. Thanks. George

Disconsolate the connector from the clutch. Engage the clutch circuit and see if electrical circuit still response as if shorted.

If the response is the same check wiring, switch and relay. Replace/repair defecrive component.

If the response is no problem check the clutch. Inspect the connector at the clutch for broken failed wire connection. Using an ohm meter check for short. The expected resistance is about 3 -4 ohms. If the resistance is less then 1 ohm the PTO clutch is bad. Sorry. It is the solenoid coil has an internal short. Confirm if the clutch is still in warranty.

Check for after market sources for reduced price!

Bent blade, bent mower deck or bent crank shaft.
Unbolt the blade, check under the spacer plate , and set blade on a flat surface to see if warped or bent.
Remove spark plug wire and pull start cord to see if motor will rotate. don't need to start. If pulls free then look for obstruction or dent.

Started my truck this was stalling out 2-3 times.. then the cluch pedel went to the floor. pulled it back up with my foot. now it is working fine. ?

Sounds like your clutch master cylinder, or slave cylinder or actuator seals failed. Most likely the actuartor. Check the clutch lines for fluid leaks. It could probably happen again and you might not be so lucky this time.
