Question about Husqvarna Garden
It may also have a partially short PTO clutch drawing so much power that the alternator can not supply enough power so it drains the battery until the fuel shut off solenoid kills the engine.
These PTO normally draws 5-7 amps with a resistance of about 1.7 ohms. Anything under 1.5 ohms indicates a shorted condition. I had a couple clutches that was still working but was pulling 18+ amps.

there is an electric clutch, also called a PTO, which is on the lower end of the motor's drive shaft. If you look underneath the mower in the front you will see it, a belt is on it which goes to the deck and spins the blades. The PTO has an inline fuse which could have blown, unfortunately it is generally caked in old cut grass, spilled oil, and belt wear residue. You are going to have to get some light down there and take a long look at the PTO, find the wire coming from it, and follow it until you feel a bump in the wire, like a cat being digested inside a snake. Clean the bump well and you will see that it is really an in line fuse holder and you can take it apart and replace the fuse if it is bad. Having said that, when a fuse goes, it goes for a reason and that is generally the PTO is failing and shorting or drawing way too much current. The fuse is a safety valve. But it may get you through the cutting and you can call a mower repair shop and have them replace the PTO.

I too have had that same problem. I found that "old" blades when repeatidly sharpened and worn will cause the same problem, also aftermarket blades instead of original manufactures recommended blades may not be dimensionally correct, too short. I have had to go back to using original blades to correct the problem.
This should work for you.

Mine was doing the same thing. Just loosen the gas cap. If its on too tight the engine will stall because the air cant get into the fuel cell to replace the abscent fuel.
