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

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

SOURCE: lawnmower wont move in fwd or reverse

Is the brake sticking. On my craftsman mower there is a bar under the brake pedal that pushes back a lever when starting. And the lever sticks. I have to reach underneath and pull the lever forward and then the mower goes. I haven't found a solution to that yet.

SOURCE: Every time I engage my blades it Boggs down. It

Something is wrong with the blades mechanism - it opposes too much resistance to the motor and the motor can't deliver enough torque to compensate so it boggs down.
You will need to inspect the entire mechanism and look for rusted and/or seized parts. Also check the belt and its tensioner for proper functioning status. Also check the clutch for loose friction pads .

SOURCE: mower wont go forward

Hook a good chain to the front end of the tractor. Have someone with a pickup truck hook the other end to the trailer hitch. Next go to the closest highway or freeway and floor it until you notice an obvious change with your problem. Something will give.

Engine starts idle well and sshut off when attempt engage blades


Chances are one of two sensors is broken or out of adjustment.
Either will cause engine shutdown when blades are engaged.
The first is the seat sensor. If you rise out of the seat with the blades engaged, the engine will die. That sensor is usually a switch located under the seat. The second is the Reverse lever (Or gear position). Newer tractors will shut off if operated in reverse with the blades engaged. This sensor may be more difficult to find, but it is usually another switch located around the gear shifter (or hydrostatic control lever).

How come I can't start my John Deere LA115 after


The Reverse Interrupt Override switch is supposed to let you keep the blades engaged while using reverse. Be sure PTO is off and brake pedal is depressed and try to start engine. If it wont start/ wont crank then a switch is stuck or failed or there is a broken wire. Switches that are involved with PTO operation are the seat switch, reverse switch, PTO switch, and RIO switch. The starting system requires neutral ( no reverse activated), brake switch and PTO switch off.

Cub Cadet 2166 series. Mower will not engage.


Unfortunately, the circuit is a little complicated - it involves the "PTO switch" (the switch you pull on to engage the mower), a "reverse switch" that senses if you've put the mower in reverse, and a relay operated by the reverse switch. The reverse switch is there to disengage the blades if you try to reverse while mowing. A failure in any of those items, or the connectors and wiring between them, will prevent the blades from engaging. Unless you want to "shotgun it" and replace parts one-by-one on a guess (which many repairmen to do save time, but at your expense) you need to use an ohmmeter or test light to trace and isolate where the failure is.

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.
