My Wheel Horse mower acted like low on gas so I filled it. Turned on the mower blades and off and on when moving and it seemed like a belt slipped. It ran unevenly, quit running and won't start.


Even if you have slipped or broken the blade belt, that would have nothing at all to do with keeping it from starting UNLESS you are trying to start it with the blades still engaged. Check that.

Mower will start fine when I engage the blades it will mow for a short time then the mower wants to stall and will if I don't disengage the blades


Are the blades turning freely when disengaged. Is it possible something is interfering and binding them somewhat (for example, if the mower picked up some rope and it wrapped around the shaft to the blades)?

Poulan self propelled 22in blade hit a rock broke tip of blade starts then stalls


Did you bend the crankshaft. To check this out remove spark plug wire and tip mower on it's side and turn blade by hand and watch the shaft the blade is fastened on to. There should be no wiggle motion what so ever and if there is it may be bent causing the engine to not operate properly.

Why won't the blades engage on my riding mower 54" mtd 13ap625k730?


You have probably thrown the belt for the blades. If it continues to throw the bet check the tensioner.

Hit a rock and shut mower off now every time I engage the blades it shits the mower down


look for a fock stuck between the mover and blades under the mower. pull the plug off before trying this. turning the blade to release something can start the mower with your hands in there.

I have a 42 inch troy-bilt riding mower the blades won't disengage.


Sounds like either the switch for the blades is not shutting off the power to the electric clutch or the clutch itself is not disengaging. I would shut the mower off and unplug the wire to the electric clutch and then start the mower and make sure the blades do not turn you may have the belt for the blades on the wrong pulley and it might be causing the blades to turn. Hope this helps.
