It sounds like a safety switch issue. It may be possible one of the deck PTO safety switches has gone out or the connector plug is loose or broken. Some newer mowers have fuses located either somewhere around the dash or under the seat check to see if there are fuses and if one is bad it could cause a similar problem to a bad or disconnected safety switch

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: Cub Cadet-Blades won't stay engaged

sounds like either a saftey switch problem or a bad drive clutch on the pto. usuallly the mower shuts down,not the blades, they may have changed this though. my best guess would be a safety sensor try calling your local cub dealer and talking to the repair person he can shed light on the problem.

No forward engagement in drive position


If engine revs go high and no forward movement you most likely need a new transmission

Won't Fully Engage Drive Gears


If the machine has been sitting idle for a period of time it is probable that the cutter spindles have failed / rusted bearings. They suffer from wet grass/ water seepage when working and when let stand idle for a time will rust up the balls in the bearings. Loosen the drive belts and see if the cutters can be turned freely by hand .

I have Troy-Bilt storm 7524 snow blower which normally works fine, however, it has started to have problems shifting back into forward gear after being reversed. I'll put the snow-blower into reverse gear...


Try lubing the linkage where it shifts from forward and to reverse the linkage is most likely freezing up or has snow or ice build up causing it not to shift, My thought is your shoving it hard enough that it finally engages when you get the snow or ice to break off.

No power when drive is engaged


Hi
Check your drive belt and the tensioner pulley that holds tension on the drive belt. Its possible for the tensioner pulley to be sticking and not putting enough pressure on the drive belt causing it to slip.
Grab hold of that tensioner pully and make sure it moves in and out freely against the drive belt.
