What causes fuse to blow every time I try to engage blades?


To engage the blades is it a knob to an electric switch that you pull?
If so does the wire from the switch activate a electric clutch?
Is the wire damaged and shorted to the frame, is the clutch shorted. If you provide the brand name and model number I might be able to find a schematic for your mower.

Video shows an electric clutch but yours may be different but this should give you an idea of where to look. Riding Mower Electric PTO Clutch Won Engage When Hot Problem Fix

Mower shuts off when blades are engaged


Remove the deck and check the blades and spindles. I suspect your issue is electrical and not mechanical though.

Model RZT42. When you back up the blades shut and when I go back to forward, the blades will not engage.


Some of the newer riding mowers have a safety system on them that won't let the blades work while you are backing up. If the blades are engaged and you put it in reverse they will stop. You usually have to reset the blades, turn them off then back on, when you put it back in forward.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

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.
