I have a cub cadet 3185 with a PTO problem

The lever to engage the blades on my Cub Cadet rider LTX 1042 KW has no resistance the the blades do not engage. Did a part possibly break off or come loose?


The blades are engaged electrically via the PTO on the engine shaft.
Check the connector and wiring to the PTO unit, or the electrical plug on the engage switch.

LT1046 cub cadet blown clutch..what caused this with new Pto switchpto switch froze..replaced it still will not engage blades.what could blow the new clutch


Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

After reverse, my cub cadet zero turn mower pto will not re engage the blades. sporadic up to the point of stopping altogether. is it the switch or clutch?


I would guess it is the switch. My Cub Cadet has a safety feature where the blades (PTO) stop when you hit reverse. There is an override where you turn the key back about a quarter turn or so and hit a button right above the key to make the blades run even in reverse. Therefore, I would guess the ignition switch is the problem but I can't be certain. Or it could be the electric switch that engages the PTO.

Pto wont engage when mower is hot


Hi

your PTO is built just like a wound up coil and becomes magnatized it gets real hot and it shorts out when it heats up make sure you have no frayed wires which will creat a large risistance and really heat up

The blades run all the time on my cub cadet 1042, even if the PTO is off


If your cub has an electric pto clutch it may be fused. Or the switch is stuck on. You can check the switch with multitester to see if its energized all the time. If not the clutch is probably fused. Which is cause for replacement. Adjustment only works with clutches that wont engage.

If you pto is mechanically engaged look for obstructions in the lever pathway. Also check for stuck idler pulleys.

Be careful and good luck!

Check your mower deck spindles and belt. If belt is slipping at all the PTO will not engage.

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.
