Outboard engine hard to start.


Press the key inwards to activate the Choke. Also, you only pump the bulb when the tank runs dry. Pumping after a successful run, shutdown, pump and restart can flood the engine.

If that doesn't work, claim under the warranty.

Cub cadet RZT 42 shuts down after about 30 min of mowing.


Check your magneto. I have had them cease to function whenever they would get hot. When cooled down, they would work.

Lawnmower shuts off after 15-20 mins of running


Sounds like a bad coil to me ... it only makes sense that has the heat from the engine transfers into the coil the coil windings expand and causes a open resulting in ignition failure and no spark to the plugs... if you need parts try www.partstree.com
