SOURCE: pto cuts off while mowing

check the safety switches start with the one on the seat then the one on the clutch/brake pedal then the reverse cut out switch bypass them one at a time with a paper clip to test them also look for a loss connection at all the same switches

Changed filter, oil, full of gas checked gas flow everything is good , when I start m lawn mower it runs , when I engage my pto and start mowing for about 5 minutes it just quits


if this is got the 27 hp kohler engine, I know exactly whats wrong with it , due to grass and engine oil building up in a short time under cylinder heads , it actually makes a tight ball of grass and stuff there !! this holds the engine heat and ruins the ign module that's just above it there , I put two on in one season ( tractor runs 6-10 hrs day 6 days a week ) I finally gave up I bought a Kawasaki 27 hp twin and installed it , now its run for two seasons and no problems
engaging the pto has nothing to do with it , it would cut off if you just drove it around for 15 minutes

JD X595 4x4 mower - Starts OK, BUT, as soon as the brake is released, the motor cuts out.


I would try bypassing the seat switch and the brake switch. Do this one at a time to determine if the switch is bad. Also buy some Sta-bil fuel stabilizer and gel remover. I recommend this for any seasonal equipment. Often the engine is not getting enough fuel and will stall when the pto is engaged. Sta-bil often rectifies this problem.

Have a cub cadet 50 inch cut zero turn, after cutting grass for 30 min or so it acts like wants to die but if I shut the PTO off it catches up but will start to die if I reengage the blades. starts a


When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

Electric Blade Clutch is shorted or if you are lucky the wiring to the clutch is grounded. Many times the wiring to the clutch is caught in debris or twigs etc. and pulls the wiring out and cuts and grounds it.
