I've had the same problem. Intermittent shut-off of the pto. Found out that the pto (electric clutch) draws heavily on the battery current to stay engaged.Clutch is actually an electro-magnet. I bought a new battery (300 cca) the bigger the better and clutch now works fine. Old battery was still strong enough to start engine but not strong enough to engage pto. Old battery was 4 yrs old. A good clutch will click if jumper wires from the battery to clutch wiring harness are connected (with out motor running.)

Got the same problem. It's maddening. It's not the PTO switch. I just replaced that for $40.00 on the dealers suggestion. It seems to be either the clutch itself or the electrical harness connecting the clutch to the electrical system.
today it quit again. I just tapped on the clutch about 20 times with the handle of a large screw driver and low and behold when I started it up, it took off again. then quit momentarily. then took off again. I was able to almost finish my 3/4 acre going very slowly.
for sure there is something wrong with the clutch.

Troy-Bilt Colt XP. Start engine and begin mowing and everything is fine. After a few swipes on the yard, 2-3 minutes, PTO shuts off. turn off and back on works shortly. PTO clutch getting hot???


electric pto clutches get HOT (not warm) for only a few reasons
(1) worn out friction disks inside
(2) foreign object(s) not allowing clutch to fully engage a good blast of high pressure air knocks out most stuff , if let go to long this leads to 1st reason

When I pull the PTO switch out, the PTO does not activate.


These switches are usually of the DPDT type which means they can partially work. What you need to do to find the wiring connector at the PTO electric clutch and test for the activation voltage. It will be the same as your battery voltage when the engine not running. If this voltage is there with the PTO switch in the engage postion then electric has failed. You can also check the clutch electric coil resistance with power off. It should be between 1.5 to 2.5 ohms. Anything under 1.5 indicates a shorted winding and anything over indicates an open winding.

What is the Function of the pto control


It is to supply power the electric clutch that drives the mower deck.
If not functioning then the switch, PTO clutch, or wiring is not working properly. Note on some ZTRs when both handles are in reverse then electric clutch is disengage for safety.

X595 john deere pto wont kick in


These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

My Allis Chalmers 6080 PTO will not shut off with the lever. Even though I pull the lever to stop PTO, it stays engaged. Any answer to this issue?


The lever is maybe not engageing the electrical switch so if it worked good in the past something has worn or come loose.Find the point where the lever engages the switch and there are usually 2 wires running to the pto.Also one or more wires might be off the pto.Go from one thing the lever does to the next step and it might be a bad switch if the lever is working the switch and it still does not turn off.Hope this helps

Simplicity zero turn electrical problems


charge the battery not hooked up to the mower let it sit overnight and try again the battery might just be died they only last a couple years put a volt meter on the battery when off then start it and watch the battery voltage should be around 14 volts running the pto clutch draws the most thats why it shuts off first the ign doesn't take any the carb needs very little

Intermittent PTO Problem on John Deer 6400


You likely need the speed sensor replaced in the rear of the tractor,either above or below the pto shaft.There is also a pto relay module beside the fuse panel that may need to be replace(only on the early 6000 series tractors,later it was replaced by the bcu).If you can get the codes from the bcu and relay the info to me i can likely tell you for sure what you need to do if none of the above works.
