When turning on pto blows the fuse


Look over the entire wiring harness wherever it may be touching metal as it probably is chaffed, simply tape and zip tie it away from the ground source.

I have a model LTH130 42 inch cut mower and just installed a new elect. clutch and started mowing grass and it began to feel like it was bogging down and I stopped the engine and the belt was very hot....


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

See this link and locate your deck:
http://opebycrigby.tripod.com/decks/jddeck.html

Make sure you have the belt routed correctly. ALSO make sure that you do not have it flipped 180 deg over the idler.

I recommend that you unhook the belt from the mower deck pulleys and try rotating the blades. A bad blade bearing can cause a belt to heat up. Of any of the blades are hard to turn by hand that blade bearing will need to be replaced. Check the idler pulley also.

If after checking the above you continue to experience a problem just respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I turn on the mower switch and the motor bogs but the blades do not turn


Since it bogs down, your PTO clutch is engaging, but something driven by the mower belt is stuck. Turn it off and look for simple things first: look under the mower deck for a branch or object jammed in there, or a bent blade. If that's all ok, then take off the mower belt and spin each of the spindles (the pulleys that drive the blades) and also the idler pulleys. If one if stuck or binding badly, you have found the problem. Idler pulley bearing are inexpensive, but spindles are spendy. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

Craftsman 42 in. deck lawn tractor. Will start and idle fine but when you let out on the clutch the motor bogs down and dies


few reasons will try to narrow down first start it and put in neutral and deck disengaged release clutch if bogs then fuel problem the carb may need adjustment or repair or fuel filter needs replacement----if no bog step on clutch no put in gear release clutch if bogs check drive belt -upper belt on engine pulley and check for binding an idler pulley problem -debris -or rear unit binding -needs service-drive pulley damaged-rear locked--if not bogging in gear step on clutch engage deck release clutch if bogs need to check deck -belts-pulleys -mandrels -bearings and for bent or binding blades good luck

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
