You should check the blades for free rotation. with the machine off and in neutral, or disengaged, try and move the blades. You should be able to move them some. Get a mirror and use it to look under the deck to see if there is anything caught in the blades or in the way of the belt. An obstruction here in the deck would stall the engine.

I have installed a new blade in my circular saw R32021 and the blade stalls even before I begin to cut wood


by stalling do you mean that the blade stops spinning or the motor stops turning
if the blade stops spinning then the mounting bolt for the blade is not tight enough
if the motor stops spinning , junk it and get a new unit

Cannot have blades engauged when in reverse mower stalls


Hello,

You are right, the mower has a disconnect for the pto when you try to mow in reverse. You need to turn the key to the mow in reverse position, and now you can mow going backwards.


Hope this helps, Matt

Blade won't stay engauged


It is very hard to say without knowing model, but if it is a Honda Harmony than I would look towards the the cable that controls the blade engagement. If your model is equipped with a blade engagement lever most likely yours is controlled by a cable also and it only needs to be adjusted correctly. Good luck!

Engins starts and runs when mowing will backfire and stall.


I am not sure what time of lawn mower this is, but if the blade is directly tied to the motor, usually the belt will just slip if not, but if this is directly connected to motor, it might have jumped timing. If this is not the case, inspect under the mower deck, and determine if there is something jamming the blades against the deck or if their is something bound around the blade, this can cause more strain on the motor, which could result in the symptoms your experiencing.

Mower wants to stall when blades are engaged on a Huskee 13hp 38'' cut Tecumseh engine 6 speed on the go shift


Usually when the motor stalls when blades are engaged on any mower it is the carb that needs cleaned and rebuilt. The motor isn't getting enough gas to handle the load.

Blade does not turn


Disconnect the electric from the saw. Remove the throat blade cover. Bring the blade all the way up. Look for wood  caught between the blade and anything else. Finding none,remove blade. Try motor w/o blade. If it runs now,w/o the blade then the motor is likely ok . Reinstall blade. Now if it stil stalls, Replace motor.
