Question about Garden
Several possible problems.
- SAFETY FIRST! Make sure the motor is OFF and then check the blades and belts to make sure they are all free to move. Could be something is jammed or a blade is bent.
- Ask yourself what happened immediately before the problem became evident. That should provide the lead to the solution.
- There should be a safety interlock that stops the mower from engaging if no one is in the operator's seat. Check to see that it is working properly.
Let us know what you find.
Then we'll all go kill grass.

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

maybe the safty switch under seat might be starting to go out if that switch doesn't work the blades wont come on at all for safety

One of two possible causes;either the PTO switch is defective or the switch for the reverse peddle is out of adjustment .The only other thing i have seen cause the PTO to shut down is a lack of battery power due to the machine not charging.

Sounds like you electric blade clutch is bad. I just had the same thing happen to my exmark mower. I was cutting grass and the engine just shut down. It would not crank over. Checked the fuses and replaced one blown fuse. The engine wanted to crank over but it was locked up. I looked the engine over and seen that the bearing in the electric clutch seized up causing the clutch to melt.
