My jd jx75 shakes excessively w/o the blade engaged.

When I start the mower it starts shaking excessively. The blade is not engaged at this time either.

    The blade shouldn't have anything to do with the engine, it is independent, most small engine movers have to have the blade for the flywheel, it will not run without it. Did you try the spark plug? Just going to throw that out there.

I have a JD 160 mower that shuts off when you turn on the pto switch for the blades, I have checked the charge in the battery and it is good, it will start to turn the blade and then the engine dies, just...

Most likely cause is the seat safety switch is not functioning properly, ie. when sitting in it to allow blades to engage, if failed it will act like there is no one on the mower and the blades get engaged it will kill the engine, like having the ignition shut off.

I hope this is helpful to you.

I have a 1500 series Cub Cadet, 54 inch cut. I ran over a rope that wrapped around the blades shutting down the mower. I turned the mower off and removed the rope. I engage the PTO. I hear it click but...

put the rope back around the blades then go in reverse slowly, park the tractor where you found it prior to running the rope over, get off, shake your head a few times, then try it again, this time pick the rope up first! that should fix ya!

19.5hp 42" cut. Shakes when mower is engaged to cut

how hard does it shake? and does it mow?
most lawn tractor will shake a quick almost violent shake at first then it should vibrate quite a bit more while you are mowing this is just caused by the power being pulled from the motor to power not only the drive but the mowing deck. its normal.
if its worse than what i described you may have a bigger problem, if there is excessive clanking from the deck your blade may be loose/installed upside down.
