The problem is in the park brake circuit,either the wires are off,the switch is bad or the park brake is on.Also check the switch under the hood near the linkage for the pto lever.

Cutting blades not engaging when lever is pushed to engage.

First make sure that you have the right belt. If you have the right belt for your model then you have laced it wrong on the wheels. You will have to get a diagram of your belt path and redo it.

Price of a new mower

Can't tell you as it depends on the make and model and size of cut and horsepower. For instance I just bought a MTD 14.5 horse 38 inch cut that was listed at Sears for $1295.00 and they let me have it for $895.00 because it was it end of last years summer season.

How come I can't start my John Deere LA115 after

The Reverse Interrupt Override switch is supposed to let you keep the blades engaged while using reverse. Be sure PTO is off and brake pedal is depressed and try to start engine. If it wont start/ wont crank then a switch is stuck or failed or there is a broken wire. Switches that are involved with PTO operation are the seat switch, reverse switch, PTO switch, and RIO switch. The starting system requires neutral ( no reverse activated), brake switch and PTO switch off.

LA115 will not turn over when trying to start

Sounds like a discharged (or low) battery. Could also be a corroded battery cable terminal.

Cub Cadet mower ran and then when I engaged the blades, the motor cut out and will not start.

There might be some gunk in your carburetor. I would try and clean that out and see if that's works for you. Hope this helps!

I have a used Cub Cadet Model #144-664-100 that I purchased last year and used half of the summer and ran great but towards the end it wasn't cutting very cleanly. So I took off a mower blade, which was...

Have you tried running it with the blade back on? It may be ok as there is a braking system built into the pto clutch that makes the blades hard to turn by hand. Regards Phil

18hp/ohv craftsman 42in wont crank

One thing to check, see if there is a piece of root stuck under the tractor there is interrupting any of the security features from allowing the tractor to start. It might be a small piece that stops a plunger from engaging.
