    My cub Cadet Zforce 50 has a similar problem - the mower only engages when I am in reverse. Same issue?

  • wyoming wonder May 07, 2014

    mine just did the same thing, the last of my problems was the belt. two days ago i tried to pull the pto button and it wouldnt work, at the back of the zero turn, under neath but the bar there is a round pully thing, on the back there is like a tab and if that tab is not in the pully will lock and wont let the zero turn pto button work. i had to all the lawnmower repair guy out to fix it but i watched what he did. he just tapped the tab down and now it works and goes into third gear.

I have a cub cadet zero turn 50' mower, i start mowing and after about 10 minutes it starts running out of gas, i pull out the choke to keep it going but it just keeps getting worse to the point of quitting. If i slow it down to a idle or just a little more it will stay running but that is not fast enough to cut the grass. does anybody out there know why i am runnung out of gas. I put a new filter on it, It did not help.

The cub cadet is a great machine and it is sophisticated as mowers go. the blades are controlled by a vacuum controlled by a part called a vacuum actuator. Most likely this part has gone bad and will need to be replaced.

SOURCE: Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

M60 cub cadet zero turn. What causes it to shut off?


There is also a safety switch for each of control arms, they both have to be in the neutral position. You may have to adjust the arms.
Are you checking the resistance at the switches?

After reverse, my cub cadet zero turn mower pto will not re engage the blades. sporadic up to the point of stopping altogether. is it the switch or clutch?


I would guess it is the switch. My Cub Cadet has a safety feature where the blades (PTO) stop when you hit reverse. There is an override where you turn the key back about a quarter turn or so and hit a button right above the key to make the blades run even in reverse. Therefore, I would guess the ignition switch is the problem but I can't be certain. Or it could be the electric switch that engages the PTO.

I HAVE A CUB CADET 50 INCH CUT ZERO TURN, WHEN YOU PULL THE PTO SWITCH TO ENGAGE THE BLADES THE BATTERY WILL DISCHARGE.


Most likely a short. You have to look in the area where engage switch gets blades going. You will find a cut wire or wires that are touching metal. This will kill a battery very quick. Fix wire , tie up wire so this doesn't happen again, and off you go. GOOD LUCK.

Cub cadet rzt 50, hit stump, blades wont engage but not bent


The blades on this cub cadet are activated with air pressure. Chances are that when you hit that stump, you either blew a fuse or the control module that allows the blades to spin. Begin by checking the fuses. J.
