    I'm guessing ofem means of them. Have you rotated the spindles and checked the blade drive mechanism to make sure something isn't frozen so that the blades can't turn?

I have a John Deere 355d lawn tractor. Every time I engage blade or release brakes the mower dies out. Checked safety seat switch and its not that.


Try pulling up on your PTO switch to engage the RIO switch. If it works then there is a problem with the reverse switch is located near the directional pedals/linkage or on the transmission. Attached is a picture of the switch from the John Deere parts catalog and a wiring diagram.

John Deere Z840A Z-Trak mower. Why does engine die when PTO is engaged?


A possible cause is an open seat switch (operator presence). Locate the switch under the seat & unplug the switch from the harness. Place a small jumper wire into the female socket leads to the wire harness. If the PTO engages without engine shutting down, replace the seat switch.

Check to see if the mower deck is plugged or a piece of wood/debris is wedged between the deck and a blade, or some wire/rope is wrapped around a spindle. If the blades don't turn by hand, it'll stall your engine when the electric PTO clutch is energized.

Lastly, a discharged battery will cause an engine shut down if there's not enough reserve when the PTO is engaged. Measure the battery voltage with a meter. If the voltage is below 11.5 volts, you may have to replace the battery.

PTO Issues


replace the pto solenoid as it has an internal short causing the fuses to blow.

I have a JD 160 mower that shuts off when you turn on the pto switch for the blades, I have checked the charge in the battery and it is good, it will start to turn the blade and then the engine dies, just...


Most likely cause is the seat safety switch is not functioning properly, ie. when sitting in it to allow blades to engage, if failed it will act like there is no one on the mower and the blades get engaged it will kill the engine, like having the ignition shut off.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Mower dies when pto is engaged blades move freely


Could be the seat switch. Your operator present switch only comes into play when the clutch is engaged. If the drive clutch is engaged, and the pto is engaged, the operator present switch has to be moade.

John deere gt 235 electric blade engagment but mower dies when you try to engage


One of two possible causes;either the PTO switch is defective or the switch for the reverse peddle is out of adjustment .The only other thing i have seen cause the PTO to shut down is a lack of battery power due to the machine not charging.

Pto spis all the time on my 1989 john deere 420


Are the blades turning? If they are not, this is normal. The PTO is an electro magnetic clutch that engages when you apply electricity via the PTO switch. When it is disengaged, the bearings and top portion of the clutch will turn because it is coupled to the engine. If the blades ARE turning then you have a bad clutch and will need to repair or replace it

Engine dies when engaging PTO switch on a John Deere GT235. I have replaced the seat switch and the PTO switch.


Check and adjust your RIO switch{reverse implement option}near the trans if so equipped.What happens when you press forward pedal then engage blades?Would also check the lower bearing on your pto clutch to see if its seized up.
