If you bought this mower used and did not change the oil and air fillter or even looked too see what the oil and air filter looked like that could be part of your problem what ever you do when you buy a used mower always change the oil and air filter make sure you are lubed up good and the mower can breath then go from there to your spark plug if it is a used mower change it is better safe then sorry got to keep that sparky sparking. Then if the problem continues think could the lever for lowering and raising the blades sliping and causing the blades to get to close to the ground if not. After all of this it would be a good time to call you nearest pro for some advice not to fix it because if they are anything like the ones around where I live they will try to help you figure out what it is just by what you tell them over the phone before they will want to see it and charge you anything.Good luck.

Mower cranks and runs smooth until i try to engage blades or put mower in gear. it then stalls out


The seat switch is not making. You can start the mower but if you try to move it or cut, the switch is acting as if there is no operator present. Find it under the seat.

I agree it is the seat switch. This switch will let you start the mower as long as it is in neutral, the brake is set and the mower blades are not engaged. I think it is just two wires, maybe you can jump them together and see if it runs.

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
