2010 subaru forester engine cuts out

consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

Treadmill get stop with a jrk whn power gets a cut..

Sounds like the wax lubrication has finally boiled off the belt the easiest way eliminate this problem is to rewax the deck. You may purchase this @ or call them 1-800-496-7278 I would recommend what is call WAX BLAST they come in 3oz or 6oz bottles.
Now the fun part to apply this product you must first get the treadmill and walk on it for about 5min to heat up the deck, then stop the unit with your product go to upper third of the belt lift edge of the belt stick the nozzle between the belt and deck squeeze the bottle approx. amount 1 tbs of wax to the center then get back on the treadmill and walk for 10 min this is to heat up the wax so that belt will act like a wick to absorb wax! This should be done every 3 months or so. Their a catch if this does fix the problem you may be investing in a new belt and possible and new deck. Hope this take of it!!

PTO Issue

It sounds like you got the cable to tight. The brake cable applys the brake to the pulley to help stop the blades when PTO is disengaged. With it being tight it might be applying the brake and that is the reason your blades are not running at full speed. If you keep using it that way it will wear out your brake and possibly damage a pulley. I suggest you loosen the brake cable or replace it with a new one.

Normal maintenance been applied to this rider ? Filters, lube, cleanings ? This sounds like an electrical issue (component hot), or a vacuum in the fuel tank. Next time it 'stops' open the fuel tank up and listen to any air 'whooshing' in.
