Sounds like the clutch may be going bad. The clutch could be getting hot and turning off.

SOURCE: craftsman mower deck engaging intermitantly

I believe I would start by looking at the grounding for the solenoid(clutch) sounds like that it may be intermittent. Or the spring assembly that physically engages the assembly on the deck my be dirty or need a lubricant and a cleaning or both. Good Luck

Bracket clutch anti-rotation


Without the anti-rotation arm installed when you engaged the PTO the clutch spun and probably ripped out the wires connecting it to the harness. This can be repaired but is tricky. If you have a Husqvarna dealer close by, it will save you several hours of labor to have them correct the problem.

On my 42in cut hydro. Husqvarna, The mower will not disengage until the speed is reduced to a low idle


Before you do anything else check to make sure the blades are engaged on thier seat ( the star) and the blade bolts are tight.
If you have an electric PTO this does not apply to you.
After confirming that your blades are tight check the operation of the PTO cable and the pivot bracket by lowering the deck all the way. Laying on the ground on the discharge side of the mower you will be able to look at the components and see and touch whats not moving freely as you engage and disengage the PTO lever. Look for a stiff PTO cable, stiff pivot bracket, missing return spring, broken spindle brackets and broken deck bracket welds.
Of course you should never work on any mechanical device while it is running.

2000 craftman lawn tractor 917.270822 blades will not engage


If your blades won't engage when you raise the lever to engage them AND that lever moves freely without the normally expected resistance, then you've lost the cotter pin that connects the lever rod to the mower deck assembly. Very easy fix! Using the mower deck raise/lower lever, lower the mower deck to "down" position. Now, lay on your side along the right side of the mower and look up (use a flashlight) under the mower at the top of the mower deck while moving the blade engagement lever "up" (which pushes the connected rod down). At the end of the rod, you will see a hole where the mower deck and rod connect. Align the hole at the end of the rod with the matching "pin" on the mower deck (you'll see it) and insert a new cotter pin to secure them together. Use a nail if you don't have a cotter pin. Voila! you are done. The blade engagement lever will now engage/disengage your mower blades successfully. Just remember that mower deck must be down, or lowered, before you engage the blades!

When I finish mowing yard I disengage mower blades but they keep on turning why


If this mower has a manual lever that has to be pushed up in order to engage the blades then check the tension pulley that connects to the lever cable on the top of the deck,it probably need to be lubricated or cleaned in order to move freely back to the normal position.

I have a bolens 38 inch riding mower. it cranked and when i tried to engage the cutting deck the belt smoked off. i replaced the belt and cranked mower. tried to engage and belt smoked and i shut it off....


did you try depressing the clutch to disengage everything regardless of being in neutral? and it sounds like a pulley bearing went bad.try to spin the pulley with your hand and see if it moves.take the belt off to the mower deck and that should keep them from turning when you go to start it.

Mower quits when engaging mower deck of husqvarna yth 2348


Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.
