    On riding forward when I run on thick grass while blades are engaged the engine stalls.
    I restart, cut more grass it;s fine, than a bit more grass to cut it stalls. When I ride revers not sure if it does the same, never tried

    Kubota t1670 riding lawn tractor stalls cutting grass when I ride forward, I did not check if it happens ridding revers.
    I was cutting tall grass and thick, blades bearing got all plugged with the green fibers. I removed all blades, cleaned and lubericated all. Blades are moving freely, no problem now. I can go on cutting now 1-2 inch grass but when I run on thick taller grass the engine just cut off instantly without any hasitation. Same effect if I stand up from the seat, the engine just cut out. So it's like because I did abuse the tractor somehow, so something happened so now more load on the engine is detected like the blades are getting jammed or something. While the engine cuts out if I'm quick enough to disingage the blades it picks up again. And I go on.

    Does this happen only when you try to reverse or all the time?

    Runs and cuts out as if short of fuel

Is the tractor running fine until you engage the blades? Are you cutting tall grass? There are a couple of reason why it stalls. First, while the engine is OFF, you need to see if the blades move freely, you need to lay down beside the deck and reach up (with a glove on, so you won't cut yourself) and see just what is up under there. Remove any debris, I.E. old grass clippings, and anything else.(see if there is anything wrapped around the column where the blades meet the rest of the deck) Then you will have to grab one of the blades and see if it moves freely. Wiggle it back and forth and find out if all 3 move freely. Sometimes a bearing will go bad in one of the blade mounts and cause the engine to stall. Sometimes the electric clutch goes bad and then you have a whole new set of problems. Either way let me know what is going on. Please rate my answer.

Ive replaced gas,gas lines,fuel pump on t1670 would try to start before if you pour gas in stil does same with new parts.tried to run 1 time and died.what else could be wrong.

check and make sure the muffler is not blocked. If it is the fuel won't be allowed to enter the cylinder and fire. A plugged muffler will put back pressure on the engine.

Forward and reverse appear to be getting slower

hydro drives have a habit of failing
There is a requirement to change the oil on a regular basis so it is possible that the viscosity is changing from contaminants and
best talk with your local Kubota service dealer and see if there is a problem other than oil

Tucomse moer 5.5 Won't speed up when cutting tall grass.

These push-mowers have a limited power, when you hit tall grass there is much more resistance on the blades. Even higher power riding mowers can stall on tall grass.

While mowing the grass the engine stalls and then catches back and stalls and catches back contuniually. the Murry select riding mower model number 405000x8c.

bad fuel filter, maybe cutting to fast, or grass is to high for what ever setting your at.

example. if grass is more then 10'' high, its not recommended to try and cut it to 3'' in one shot. start with the highest setting, and work it down. hope this helps.......

Lawn mower stalled while cutting grass and cord

Check under the mower to see if anything is lodged in the blade, preventing it from turning. It that is clear, then the motor may have siezed up. possibly due to lack of engine oil

Engine stalls when blade is engaged

the best way to check is to run the engine with you on it then lift off the seat and see if the seat sensor is cutting off then put a bag with some weight in it and turn on the engine it should run ok if the sensor is working and lift the back box to see if the sensor works there.. the other cause could be a build up of grass in teh cutter area stopping the blades fron moving this can caus a stall if you get a hose and blast under the cutter guards and make shure the grass shute is clear for the grass to exit this may help to mine cuts out if there is a blockage here and the grass cant get out after it has been cut it builds up at the exit plates.. Hope this works AB
