Question about Snapper Garden
Everything works as advertised until I shut the mower down, then the clutch assembly spins and rips the wire ends off the clutch. I replaced the wire connector with spade wire ends and tried again. The mower starts up just fine and then I pushed the button to disengage the mower and it did it again the clutch spun and ripped the new spaid wire ends completely off. I had already mowed for around an hour and had the blades on and off several times. It was acting as it is supposed to all day then for no reason it just did it! Meaning it wasn't acting funny at all when I used it the other times.

So the pto was spinning around WITH the crankshaft? if so then you have a broke pto bracket it keeps the pto still while the bottom spins the deck belt - look under the mower if you can turn the pto more then a half inch then you have a missing bracket or its hitting sometimes and acting like its not there half the time

SOURCE: pto clutch keeps shutting off
If you have not replaced the pto switch do so. If you have check wiring from switch to the pto coil. Many times the wiring at the pto coil is rubbed by the belt until it wears the wire into. You can also try energizing the coil to the pto directly from battery (With engine off of course) If it energizes and stays energized it is probably not the coil.

It sounds like the seat switch is disconnected or failed. Check it out. If it thinks there is no **** on the seat it will cause your symptoms.

If you have a new battery and it went dead that quickly I would check the charging system on the mower engine. Many of them use a voltage regulator and if it goes bad it will not properly charge the battery. Get the engine running (do not engage the PTO) and use a multimeter set on DC voltage. Place the multimeter leads on the battery and you should see approximately 13-14 volts DC at the battery terminals when it is running. If less then that then it's a problem with the charging system and further tests would be needed to figure out if it is a bad regulator or charging coil.

Testimonial: "I think that's it, the clutch was just a symptom of low voltage maybe. checked two leads from the alternator and got 31 volts ac from each. Hoping then it is the regulator."
