SOURCE: Husquavarna GT2254 runs fine till I try to engage the blades,

Hello janec37415:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Seat Safety Switch is Bad, has a Bad Connection or the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Enough for the PTO to be Engaged.
>>When the Blade is Engaged, the Seat Switch is Showing No One is on the Seat so the Engine is Shut Off by the Safety System or
>>When the PTO is Engaged and the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly, the Carburetor Solenoid Does Not get enough Voltage to Stay Open and the Engine Quits.
>>If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Happy.
>>Thanks.


Respectfully
John

SOURCE: Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

SOURCE: pto not engaging blades

Lets start from the beginning:

Do you have power going to the switch you need to check this with a volt meter it should read between 12 and 13 volts with thew engine off

if you have power to the switch next we need to check to see if there is power coming out of the switch again check with a volt meter.

if you have power coming out of the switch then we need to see f power is getting to the relay on the battery terminal and the switch terminal and if there is power to both terminals then we need to see if the relay is functioning correctly ( check output terminal with voltmeter)

If we have power to and through the relay we need to see if we are getting power to the clutch ( check this at the clutch) if there is no power to the clutch trace your wires back until you find power and make the repair. If ther is power to the clutch but the clutch does not engage you may have an open ground meaning the circuit is not complete again check your wiring. If everything checks out but the clutch does not engage then you have a bad / open in your clutch hope this helps

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

You've checked the wiring to the PTO and it looks OK. Does the PTO engage when the switch is thrown? Do you have a multi meter , so you can trace the voltage to the switch, from the switch to the PTO. You also should check the safety switch (s) which will prevent the PTO from engaging if there is a faulty switch. And it could simply be a fuse that has blown.

Scotts L2048 lawn tractor deck wont engage


You need to check the wires from the clutch, with the ignition on pull the pto switch out there should be a 12 volt supply at the wires if not replace the pto switch, if you have 12 volts then it is the clutch itself, they are not realy repairable, so may need a replacment.

DTY 4000 tractor dies when engaging pto, new


Hi,
This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.
