Countax Version 4.1 Honda engine. This mower is leaning over which means that it is cutting unevenly. The bit which pivets at the front end has been greased and seems ok by the way I`m female which is why I can`t use tech terms

SOURCE: I have a Countax K14 ride on mower the cutter deck

Hello ianh_2007:

Usually this Problem is Caused by a Blown Fuse or a Bad PTO Ground.
1-The Following is a Basic File I Made for Checking the PTO (Blade Engagement).
>>The Most Common Cause for this Problem is the PTO Ground. >>A Quick Ground Check is to Use Another Wire and Ground the PTO at the Harness Connection Nearest the PTO.
>>Be Careful and Do Not Ground the HOT Wire. Use a Multimeter and Locate the Ground Wire.
>>Clean the PTO Ground and All the Connections for the PTO Wiring Harness.
>>If you have an Ohmmeter, Disconnect the Wiring Harness from the Front of the Clutch and Check the Resistance of the Clutch. You should have around 4 or 5 OHMs. If at or near Zero, the Coil has Shorted.
2- >>The Following is a Basic File I made for Setting the PTO Clearance. Any Input is Appreciated. **Some of the Newer PTOs cannot be Adjusted.
>>If you can Get a Blade Style Feeler Gauge between the PTO Magnet and Clutch, then Set the Clearance at .015in. The Newer PTOs have the Same Set Up as the Older PTOs, except there is No Adjustments.
>>I Suggest also that you Rig a 12 Volt Light for Testing the Current Flow to the PTO while Operating the Mower. If the Light Blinks During Operation, then you have a Bad Connection somewhere to the PTO Clutch.
>>If the Light Stays Steady and the PTO Still Kicks in and Out, then it is the Adjustment.
>>You can Also Try Turning the Spring Loaded Adjuster Nuts 1/4 Turn and Operate the Mower. Do Not Adjust Over 1/2 Turn.
>>If you have Adjusted to 1/2 Turn and the Problem is Still Present and you Know the Voltage to the PTO is Steady, then Replace the PTO.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: Sears Tractor Mower 42" is cut cutting lawn in two uneven strips

First, check the blade, it may be bent. If not, there is an adjustment nut (9/16) on each side in the middle of the deck hanger bracket. Get on level surface and screw each up or down to get blade tips the same height on each side.

when you put the new blades on did you notice if they were even with each other? the 42" decks have a tendency to "warp" inward on the left side. this causes the left blade to ride at an angle to the right blade - there is a tool to correct this, but not all shops have it - sometimes you can remove the deck, flip it over and wallop the inside edge of the left mandrel until the blades are even - a 2 lb. sledge works well for this

SOURCE: uneven grass cutting

I have seen dull blades, blades not installed right and an un-level deck cause that.

Hope this helps.

As soon as I engage the blades the engine stops this has only just happened and it has been working fine until now you can start and drive it butnot cut This is a countax c600h thanks


Sounds like your seat switch may be defective not allowing you to run while the blades are engaged..it is acting like you got off the mower with the blades running....try temporarily bypassing it wire a piece of wire or paper clip..just disconnect it and put the wire ends in the connector ..if it is bad the mower will run with the seat empty and the blades running....CAUTION THIS IS JUST TO TEST IT..IT IS A SAFETY DEVICE AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED...GOOD LUCK..

How can i drain the oil from transmission on my countax C600H


The Countax is a mower, not a bike, hence the confused answers above. The Tuff Torq transmission on these are not good, and as you have found a sealed unit. I had the same issue, you can remove it from the mower chassis, take out the breather and flip it over to get some oil out but most of it stays in and this is unlikely to cure the problem. Frankly they are a bit rubbish. You can try refurbishing it completely, there are some good "how to's" on youtube. I bought a "referb" trans, that pulls ok for now but it sounds awful, I doubt it will last. It is probably quicker and easier and in the long run cheaper to buy a complete new trans unit, at 750 or buy a complete new mower. Sorry, but although they hold their money these are residential grade machines and you should not expect more than 10 years light use out of them. Towing or snow ploughing will ruin what is regarded as a fairly lightweight trans. I'm looking at getting a ZTR mower now as they are supposed to be much faster, simpler and have a more commercial specification. I'm pretty disappointed with the engineering on the Countax or Westwood machines, they cut well when perfect but are definitely fragile.

My countax C300H starts OK but when I engage the cutters it immediately cuts out. If I let the engine run for 10 minutes then engage the cutters they usually work ok but this is pretty annoying. Is there...


Just got one of these mowers myself - accidentally got a large stone caught in the blades which caused the same problem. It looked to me that there's a sensor on the flywheel that cuts the motor if the blades aren't rotating freely. You might find either that the sensor is broken (check it by pulling off the connectors and connecting them together) or that the blades aren't rotating for some reason.

Why does my 42 inched deck craftsman tractor cut uneven?


It needs to be leveled. Level it from side to side and front to back, then drop the front 1/4" lower than the rear. The hangers holding the deck in place are adjustable.

Traxxas revo 3.3 running problems


Maybe running to lean or to rich. When you accelerate put youre hand where the exhaust is and you should get a light spraying of unburnt fuel over hands(lovely!). If you do you may be able to screw in high end needle in a bit and i mean just a bit. If you hear the engine note raise a bit with a slightly higher pitch then you are running to lean and you will want to unscrew the high end needle valve asap.
Also check youre idle screw and make sure thats not closing the carb and stopping any airflow into engine. Let me know how it goes.

Mtd riding mower: right mower blade cutting uneven, but don't see problem


The blade can be bent or the deck is not level. Adjust the deck and level it from side to side. Now level it from front to rear with the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back. If after leveling it, you find it still cuts uneven remove all blades and inspect them. You will more than likely find one is bent. Replace a bent blade.

5------------blades even when pointing at each other? no more than 1/8 high or low
6------------blades dull or upside down? turned up ends go towards deck
7---------------incorrect blades for mower?
8------------deck lifting mechanism should pick up deck evenly and drop evenly?
