Try running it up on some ramps so you can get access to the underside of the deck. With the engine OFF, see if the mower blades will rotate. Use a hose and do a good clean up of the underside. Check to see if there is a blade brake on any of the pulleys and make sure that it is linked properly so that it releases when you try to engage the blades.

SOURCE: Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

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

SOURCE: engine cutting off

Depends on how it cuts off. If it gradually slows down over a few minutes or surges, it's likely the carburetor needs to be cleaned and rebuilt. But if it's an immediate cut off, it's likely to be a safety switch such as the one that shuts down the engine when you get off the seat if the mower is running. Sometimes this happens frequently to a light person who bounces on the seat when mowing.

SOURCE: engine chokes & dies when deck PTO engaged...

you need to start with your electric clutch and then backwards to your idler pulleys and deck spindles and bearings.
your electric clutch should almost stop the blades instantly when disengaged ,check the center bolt in the clutch to be sure it is tight also
remove the belt from the electric clutch and energize clutch any noise? sometimes the bearing goes bad in the clutch itself.
check all of your 3 spindles for noise and loose. remove belt and spin by hand and listen for quiet and they should turn free with no binding
check blade tightness
any item the belt goes around needs to be looked at for secure and operable.

SOURCE: ride on Mountfield Lawn mower 1228H - engine cuts out

Check to make sure there is no obstruction in the blades or on top of the deck where the belt goes. Also check that your pulleys turn freely and that a bearing didn't freeze up.
Let me know if this helps.

Why does my rover rancher stall when i go to engage the cutting deck


1>the pressure switch under the seat may be malfunctioning? (it will cause the engine to die immediately when trying to engage the cutting blades because it thinks your not sitting in the seat.
2>dirty or clogged air cleaner element will cause engine to die when engaging cutting blades. This can be tested very easily by removing the air cleaner element and then trying to engage the blades again. If this works then replace air cleaner element immediately before running the engine anymore.
I have personally experienced both of these problems myself more that once.

Engine stalls


could be a stuck pulley or bearing, or debris in the cutting deck. make sure the blades turn freely with mower off and blades dissengaged. If they dont, remove the deck and check all of the pulleys for freeness.

What is causing my enginge to stall when I try to engage my mower deck?


Check the seat switch it might be disconnected. It will cut the mower off if you leave the seat without disengaging the deck.

I HAVE A DLS CRAFTSMAN LAWN TRACTOR AND WHEN I ENGAGE THE CUTTING DECK IT STALLS OUT


There is a seat switch to protect the driver in the case of him/her being thrown out while the blades are going, and if this is disconnected or not working the engine should cut out as soon as the blades are engaged.
Tilt your seat back and check the switch connections out.

Need a troubleshooting manual for a craftsman mod. 917.287070


Went out to cut grass and the blades will not engage and when I put it in gear it does not move. Belts are intact. I cleaned the deck of dirt and grass. Still nothing. Just replaced the cable to engage the blades last year. Cable seems to be working.
