SOURCE: hi have a Toro wheelhorse 212-6. new to us. wont cut.

Yes, there is a switch on the dash. It operates an electric PTO or clutch for the mower blades. That is how most lawn tractors work. Of course , yours could be different, but if it is, It still has a clutch somewhere and a lever to engage the blades. Most of the electric ones are controlled by safety switches, One being in the seat, if you are not in the seat, it will not connect, if you get out of the seat with it running, the engine will cut off. Sometimes one is on the mowing deck, it will not connect if the deck is up. If you cannot get the PTO to work, it could be shot. (Rare) You can hear it go when it starts, check it out, hope this helps.

Ok i have a problem with lt 1000 craftsman lawnmower. the tractor starts up runs great just when you put in gear or try to put blades in motion it shuts down can someone plz help


check for a safety switch near your shift handle for the gears . most have a kill switch for when your mowing and go to drive in reverse with the blades on . when you go to do this it puts the shift handle against a metal switch that closes a normally open circut that ends up grounding the coil to kill the engine .. easiest thing to try and dont cost to try . is to unplug this ( temporary ) my mtds have 2 wires not sure if craftsman has these or not . but if so just unplug it and it should work and run like normal if this is what the issue is .

What kind of oil do I use in a Wheel Horse lawn tractor?


Your Onan engine will do excellent with Mobil One 0w40, Mobile One 5w30.

DO NOT use hydraulic oil in the transmission/transaxle, you will destroy it. Your tractor uses an Eaton 11 Hydrostatic transmission pump with the oil resevour being the cast iron transaxle. The WheelHorse transaxle is as rugged as they come. It uses a solid cast iron housing, case hardened intermediate gears and forged differential gears with an eight pinion differential.

Your transaxle requires 10w40 synthetic or conventional oil as well as a wix 51410 filter or the OEM wheelHorse filter. It should be changed every 100 hours with conventional oil or 250 hours with synthetic. DO NOT use hydraulic oil!
