Does my pto mower engage/disengage clutch need replaced or adjusted?

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.

SOURCE: Dies when clutch disengaged

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.

SOURCE: electric blade clutch won't work and battery went dead

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."

Why does my engine shut off after running for awhile with PTO engaged; will restart with PTO disengaged, but shuts off when i attempt to engage PTO?


Does this only happen when the engine is warm or at operating temperature or all the time even when cold? In older engines, a 'bad ignition coil' would fail when the engine warmed up and would not start again until cool or at ambient temperature.

Husqvarna pto problem(?) disengaged blades to travel, would not engage after. Battery dead when checked after shutting off engine and wouldn't restart


Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

PTO CONTROLS. How do you engage and disengage PTO.


The tractor is not a 6300 is it.If it' not you need to adjust the cable for the p.t.o. until it will stay down.Don't turn the turnbuckle too much at a time because there is a fine line between the won't engage and the won,t disengage adjustment.

PTO switch shuts down tractor


if the pto bearing is locked up it will stop a motor dead this is a common problem. You will have to get a new clutch assemble. The other thing that it could be is the deck has a locked up spindle.

Cub Cadet-Blades won't stay engaged


sounds like either a saftey switch problem or a bad drive clutch on the pto. usuallly the mower shuts down,not the blades, they may have changed this though. my best guess would be a safety sensor try calling your local cub dealer and talking to the repair person he can shed light on the problem.
