Check fuse or power it up seperatly with 12volts (battery directly into the two terminals) to see if it is a wiring fault but it sounds like you need a new clutch assembly $$$

MOST likely cause is a worn/failed drive belt. I'd replace that first - be SURE to use a Kevlar belt or you'll be repeating the repair in a very short time frame.

My electric pto is not working properly. It shuts off and does not turn back on when theswitch is pulled


I've had the same problem. Intermittent shut-off of the pto. Found out that the pto (electric clutch) draws heavily on the battery current to stay engaged.Clutch is actually an electro-magnet. I bought a new battery (300 cca) the bigger the better and clutch now works fine. Old battery was still strong enough to start engine but not strong enough to engage pto. Old battery was 4 yrs old. A good clutch will click if jumper wires from the battery to clutch wiring harness are connected (with out motor running.)

My Cub cadet pto cluch bearing is froze up on my 2518 lawn tracto


A medium length extension (stuck through the grill), a swivel and an impact is all you need to remove the pulley with the frozen bearing. It's just a bolt, a washer, and a lock washer holding it on. You just need to remove the pulley to see if the bearing is stuck. Take the pulley to your local shop that can press bearings and you can be up and running for $20 dollars instead of $300. Here's a diagram I found on partstree:

Cub cadet wont engage blades to cut grassmower iz rtz 50 zero turn tried to move the wires around and checked the 20 amp fuse no shorts. was cutting fine i just stopped to dump the bagger. any help would...


Try this:
With the engine turned OFF, unplug the wire connector at the PTO clutch, and use an alternate 12 volt DC power source and some alligator clips to manually power-up the clutch. If a firm, crispy "Click" is heard each time you "power-on / power-off" the clutch, then safety switches on the tractor are the most likely suspects.

If no firm, crispy "Click" is heard, your PTO clutch needs to be replaced.
On the right-hand side of THIS page, type in (without spaces) RZT50 and you will be given a list to choose your EXACT machine & part number.

Special Note:
If your part number description says to refer to "Service Advisory ...(blah blah)" then you will need to call a servicing dealership for the proper replacement part number.
Hope this helps.
