Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

I was mowing lawn and the blades stop working


The first thing to check is the belt. You need to see if it is broken or has slipped or is bound up. Then check the blade engage mechanism is still attached to the deck properly and working properly. Check the tensioning pulley and the idler pulley.

Cub cadet riding mower blade won't turn on. when you pull the blad to turn it on you can here a click but the blade won't turn on and start spinning.


If the click you hear is the electric PTO engaging, then your deck belt is broken or off a pulley some where. Check the belt & then clarify if needed

Engage blades makes noises


Sounds like the bearings are going out in one or both of your blade spindles. With the belt off,(and engine, of course) engage the lever on the dash. That will release the blade brake so the blades will be free to turn. Spin each one by hand. It will be easy to tell if the bearings are bad.

Craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut


It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps
