Yard works 4.5hp 42" cut lawn tractor cuts fine when mower deck is up on 4, but when it is lowered it cuts out and won't cut the grass.


4.5 hp will not power a 42 inch deck any way you cut it quite likely the blades need sharpened real bad .motor needs to run fast when tryng to cut also as that throws the grass out of the deck

Why is it that my riding Lawnmower doesn't cut when I lower the deck to cut the grass lower


Tighten or replace drive belt. Before you do that though, with the deck raised right up and engine switched off reach underneath deck and grab hold of blades and try to move them up and down. Make sure there is no build up of debris between pulleys and guards. Remove the belt off pulleys if you can. Turn blades and check they are free to turn. What you are doing here is checking the blade spindle bearings for wear or damage. If they have excessive movement or feel rough and/or tight replace them. If they are good and the belt looks in good order, tighten belt That is done by adjusting the deck rods so the deck moves back. You tube have some videos of belt adjustment.

Engine cuts out wen blades turned on


You either have a faulty PTO switch or a faulty seat switch
The saftey shut down circut usually has four switches that have to be made to start motor and engage blades
both steer levers have one each
seat has one
lever conected for parking brake has one
scag might use plug in relays which could be bad too

I just bought an old John Deere 68 riding mower but it does not cut grass even though the blade spins when engaged. I made sure the blade was on correctly but it still doesn't cut. I noticed the pulley...


Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?

Check the blade spindles one could be installed improperly. You can also install washers under bolts in spindle to get the adjustment you need.

Blades will not engage but will remain running


It is most likely the switch. I had the same problem and that fixed. I found the switch on Amazon for less than $20. Stens 430-798 PTO Switch Replaces Scag 483957

I have a 15.5 hp Craftsman Riding Mower with a 42" deck, the mower now leaves a 3inch strip between the blades and I blade cuts the grass lower on one side (scalping)


As for the stripe, you will need to change the blades, they are worn out, if not damaged outright. As for the cutting the grass lower on one side, since you are changing the blades, remove the deck and inspect the spindle/mandrel on the troublesome side paying close attention to the ears that the bolts that mount it go into, you may well find that one of them is cracked. If so, replace it. The spindle/mandrel cost a little over $60.

I hope this helps you out.
