Can be if its coil is partially shorted. These usually 5-7 amps current-wise.

Disconnect the pto clutch wire connector at the pto clutch assembly. Using multimeter do a ohms test on the engagement coil. If it reads less than 1.5 ohms then it is partially shorted.

I have seen clutches to work even pulling up to 15 amps when partially shorted which more than most small engine alternators can produce.

John Deere Z840A Z-Trak mower. Why does engine die when PTO is engaged?


A possible cause is an open seat switch (operator presence). Locate the switch under the seat & unplug the switch from the harness. Place a small jumper wire into the female socket leads to the wire harness. If the PTO engages without engine shutting down, replace the seat switch.

Check to see if the mower deck is plugged or a piece of wood/debris is wedged between the deck and a blade, or some wire/rope is wrapped around a spindle. If the blades don't turn by hand, it'll stall your engine when the electric PTO clutch is energized.

Lastly, a discharged battery will cause an engine shut down if there's not enough reserve when the PTO is engaged. Measure the battery voltage with a meter. If the voltage is below 11.5 volts, you may have to replace the battery.

How do I check the PTO switch on my RTZ22 mower?


Hopefully you put back the stabilizer for the clutch assy. If not then it spun the first time you you crank the mower engine and destroy it wiring connections.

If this didn't with the mower not run but the ignition in the on position disconnect the connector at PTO clutch. Now switch on the PTO switch and using a voltmeter (DVM) check for the battery voltage across the two wire at the connector. If voltage is there then the PTO clutch is bad. But if the voltage isn't present then either you have bad PTO or ignition switch or have wiring problem.

When you inguage the ele pto it kill the engine whats the problem?


It could be a number of different things.
The starter switch has 2 different positions for safety. One will kill the engine while backing.
Have you tried engaging it with the switch in both positions? I would check that first.
If it doesn't kill the engine while in the safety bypass mode for backing, it would probably be a bad or stuck limit switch on the reverse linkage.

I have a 2005 poulan pro 42in 24hp riding mower, blades wont engage when pto switch is pulled


You should have a two wire plug that comes up from underneath near the front where the machines engine crankshaft is. Normally the wires are one colored red the other black with the key in the run position engine (OFF) there should be battery voltage or close to it. Which can be measured with a voltmeter. With the PTO switch in the on position. If you have voltage you have a bad electric PTO if no voltage then you'll have to check voltage to and from the switch itself. Someone should be sitting in the seat to perform the test for on many machines the safety switches won't allow the PTO to be engaged unless someone is on the machine. A wiring diagram would help you trace the wiring to the switches and PTO much easier.

Pto clutch electrical


1. Check battery (specific gravity and load test). 2. Check voltage going into battery while running without and with pto engaged. 3. Make sure unit is running at full throttle whenever electronic PTO is engaged otherwise it wont keep battery charged up.

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.

Check and adjust your RIO switch{reverse implement option}near the trans if so equipped.What happens when you press forward pedal then engage blades?Would also check the lower bearing on your pto clutch to see if its seized up.
