Uh, yea. Governor rod? Really dude? Sure, split the case to the motor which will take all day and you will never be able to re-assemble the motor.

Quite frankly, your grass is too long and your mower is under severe load stress. First, raise your wheels as high as they will go. Every mower has wheel adjustments. Second, be sure your catch chute is clear (this is the where the bag connects that catches the grass. If your mulcher is attached, remove it attached your bag to catch the clippings. This will reduce the load on the blades. Third, make sure the yard is not wet when you are mowing it. We grass makes it three times heavier and will kill your mower. Do all 3, and I bet your problem is solved.

Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Have a cub cadet 50 inch cut zero turn, after cutting grass for 30 min or so it acts like wants to die but if I shut the PTO off it catches up but will start to die if I reengage the blades. starts a


When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

Husqvarna too slow when mowing


Some self-propelled mowers include a speed control, but sometimes it may seem that no matter how you adjust it, the mower just creeps along at a snail's pace. Most likely this isn't a mechanical malfunction, but an adjustment is probably needed.

Very tall or thick grass can bog down a self-propelled mower, but adjusting the height of the blade may allow it to roll through and cut the grass at normal speeds. If the blade is low, the amount of cutting required may slow down the movement of the entire mower. The frame of the mower may also stick in the high grass. Raise the blade little by little until the mower rolls at the appropriate speed. Going up hills may cause a similar response.

It's possible the drive belt on the mower can slip. Inspect this part to see if it is loose or cracked, and replace the belt to restore power.

I have a craftsman gt 5000 model 917.276220 runs fine but when mowing deck is engaged it wants to die when under a load or cutting tall grass, it will stay running but when i start to cut it bogs down?


not possitive, but sounds like 1 of the bearings on the mower deck is starting to seaze up.I would start with that. Remove the deck and belts and check all the pullys and bearings for free movement.

Scotts mower kohler command 25 motor bogs when mowing


Hi..my name is Keith..and it sounds like you have a binding somewhere on your mowing deck..i would check all the spindles .. pulleys and blades..and check the deck belt..it could have jumped a belt guard and it running on the outside of it..but just remember it has pulley brakes to slow the pulleys down when you shut it off..so..engage the deck without the engine running and check for the binding..i hope this has helped..if not..please write me back

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.

Motor has low torque


common complains for electric & cordless mower is that they are not ment for cutting on wet or dump grasses or long tall grasses they will bog down. for this type of unit blade should be extremely sharp. also clean the under the deck so you can better air flow for the blade. if your switch & rectifier are new & in right connection then have you armature check for short circuit..
