Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348
My 2-year old tractor has just started (a month after annual servicing) to run at a low RPM, that is most noticeable when I engege the blades (otherwise, the throttle seems to run pretty high w/o PTO engaged).
JD limited support suggests fuel (new gas, used a little stabilizer just in case), and fuel filter (looks fine..clean w/ no clogs visable), and looking at spark plug (which is OK).
Just now, I cleaned up loads of built up dirt/mud on the undercage (blade-path). The last time I used mower it buckled under heavy/tall grass, and now it is operating in this half-hearted manner.
Any help MOST appreciated!

the engine is icing up. Kawasaki may have a winter kit available. I have solved the problem it the past on other engines by partial blocking the air intake screen with cardboard. Cut a piece of heavy card board the same size as the intake screen cut a few pizza slice shapes out and zip tie it to screen. remove in the spring. refer to owners manual if you are unsure what the air intake screen is.

SOURCE: spitting and sputtering
mine did the same, I found out that the high speed jet was clogged, I pulled the fuel line off the filtor(going to the carb), stuck the line into a mixture of half gas half carb cleaner, I fanned it up and in 2 or 3 minutes it started running well, hope this helps.

It sounds like your charge system is not working. If you jump the battery the engine will run with a weak battery but the pto clutch needs a strong battery to stay engaged.Try this to test it,after you jump it leav the jumper cables hooked up and try to engage the blade clutch,if it runs it is either a battery that wont take a charge or a charge system not working. If you put a volt meter on the battery while the engine is running and the voltage is 13 volts the charge system is working and the battery is bad.

The most likely problem is the pto solenoid valve on the rear of the tractor.It could be the speed sensor but you won't know until you get the codes read by the dealer.I have had to replace the b.c.u. for this problem but it is not common.
