Question about Garden
We have and MTD Cub Cadet 3185. The blades don't seem to have us much power as they used to. The blades will stay engaged when in reverse. When going forward, they take a few seconds to get up enough speed to actually cut, but after a few yards the blades eventually turn off.
We do know that the safety switch is good on it.
Any help would be unbelievably welcome.
According to the info i have this tractor has a disengage to prevent mowing in reverse, the blades should stop in reverse, meaning the pto should stop and have to be reset. i dont see a mention of reverse overide switch. are the springs for the idler pulley on the deck hooked up and is the belt good and right length. if so you have a bad clutch or as i said before a saftey switch.

Ok when was the last time you had the hydrolic fluid changed ?
or the oil for that mater ?
oil breaks down
you wouldnt cook your french fries in year old oil but you will cook your tranny with it in a cub or mtd machine 100-120 hours max for the fluids in an mtd b4 they start to loose texture or viscosity ( sound it out)
hydro pumps di die mtd has 1 monster that is quite expensive also have you changed the filter on the rear axcel lately or is it full of nut butter and in bypass mode
100 hours doesnt seam like much but for a tractor it is
