I think i may need to replace the pto clutch on my stx38...is it difficult to do? Also, how can i best determine whether it is the pto clutch or perhaps the switch that activates the clutch. currently, the switch will activate the pto, the blades will operate but then will abruptly stop while mowing. the switch at that point seems to do nothing. the first time it happened, a little ''persuasion'' with a kick to the running board of the tractor helped it the pto to re-engage.

Depending on the age of the mower, it sounds like a wire has wiggled lose, or the switch itself has gone bad. I would check the wiring to the switch and to the pto clutch and ensure that all wires are secure, free of corrosion. If this still doesn't fix the issue, install new switch. This appears to be entirely and electrical issue, and is a cheaper troubleshooting method before tearing down the pto engagement system.

Let me know!

Why wont john deere stx 30 pto wont engage


Most of these mowers have a safety switch between the PTO switch and clutch. A safety switch or relay is most likely the problem. Hope this will help ya.

Mower blades will not engage on my STX38


Turn the key switch to the on position. Pull the blade engagement switch on.Look under the engine and find the electric clutch. Disconnect the wire connection there and while using an ohm meter, check and see if there is 12 volts on one of the wires. If so, then the clutch may be your problem. If not, then you need to trace back the wire from the clutch connection and find out why there is no voltage

Electric pto will not engage the mowing deck. stopped working while mowing.


had a similar problem. The engine mount bolt that grounded the PTO black ground wire was loose- causing the pto to work erratically. To see this bolt (13mm i think) you will have to lie on your back and look under the machine. It is above the front steering arm of the right tire. If the wire is dangling you will need a new bolt. Thanks for the previous posts ;)
