Try this:
With the engine turned OFF, unplug the wire connector at the PTO clutch, and use an alternate 12 volt DC power source and some alligator clips to manually power-up the clutch. If a firm, crispy "Click" is heard each time you "power-on / power-off" the clutch, then safety switches on the tractor are the most likely suspects.

If no firm, crispy "Click" is heard, your PTO clutch needs to be replaced.
On the right-hand side of THIS page, type in (without spaces) RZT50 and you will be given a list to choose your EXACT machine & part number.

Special Note:
If your part number description says to refer to "Service Advisory ...(blah blah)" then you will need to call a servicing dealership for the proper replacement part number.
Hope this helps.

I hit a metal pipe with my cub cadet zero turn lawn mower today. Now it smokes under the deck when I engage the blades and it is not cutting the grass. Have I ruined my mower?


You'll need to look under the deck w/ the mower not running and see why the blades aren't turning. Most likely something is bent (maybe blade) and hitting something. The smoke is probably from the belt slipping and getting hot.

I have a cub cadet rzt50 zero tudn. Blades are new and sharp but when i cut there is a trial of cut grass in the center of the mower tracks that is left behind. Mower is only a few years old with 100 hours...


if this started after the blades where replace make sure you have the right blades zero turn and reg mowers have different blades then check the bearings on the blade mandrels then last is to check for a rotted out deck with the belt tension pulling the blades apart

I HAVE A CUB CADET 50 INCH CUT ZERO TURN, WHEN YOU PULL THE PTO SWITCH TO ENGAGE THE BLADES THE BATTERY WILL DISCHARGE.


Most likely a short. You have to look in the area where engage switch gets blades going. You will find a cut wire or wires that are touching metal. This will kill a battery very quick. Fix wire , tie up wire so this doesn't happen again, and off you go. GOOD LUCK.

I have a 50" cut


Most likely you have a faulty seat switch. Replacing it should solve your problem but visually check the wiring to the switch first. Regards Phil.

Cub cadet rzt 50, hit stump, blades wont engage but not bent


The blades on this cub cadet are activated with air pressure. Chances are that when you hit that stump, you either blew a fuse or the control module that allows the blades to spin. Begin by checking the fuses. J.

Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage


I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.
