Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

Mower stalls when I engage the blades in forward, but cuts and runs fine in reverse! The mower runs fine in forward and reverse without the blade deck engaged.

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

Starts fine, drives fine. When I engage cutting blades, it immediately stalls.


If in all other respects the mower is running like expected then it is most likely the switch under the operators seat that will not allow the blades to engage when no one is sitting in the seat. If the operator is under weight or the switch defective the unit will shut off!!

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

Engine runs but stalls when engaged


This sounds like a micro switch, or relay issue, it is not stalling it is being switched off, if there are some relays on the back of the bulk head replace them, they are just a push fit.

Troy Built Ride-on, stalls when blade is engaged.


You may have a short in one of your safety switches. There is usually one on the seat that shuts it off if you try to get up and one on reverse if you try to back it up. I would look there to see if somehow they are grounding out

If you can get it where you can grab the blades, check and see if they float easy. You could have a seized bearing on one of your blades that is stalling out the motor as well.

Hope this helps
