Hi
Check for burnt fuse behind dash. If no burnt fuses check if getting power to magnetic clutch mounted on bottom of engine crankshaft. Make sure wires are not broken by magnetic clutch. Make sure the safety seat switch is working. Make sure you are sitting on the seat when you try to engage the blades. If that does not work try pushing and wiggling the seat sensor. Check make sure wire is attached to safety switch under seat.

SOURCE: Craftsman 42 inch riding lawn mower is not cutting evenly

The first thing to check is your blades. If one is bent, it will never cut even. It happens a lot hitting roots, antbeds, etc. Mulching blades will bend easier than a straight blade. It's best to take them off and lay one on top of the other to see if they're bent.

I canot get a bagger kit for the 54inch cut lawn tractor in UK, can a 48, bagger be fitted and altered to fit which I can get in the UK


I have never seen a catcher for this size of deck, Husqvarna do not offer one, i am sure the deck aperture is different from the 48" machine, if the catcher is available in the US, would they just supply the upper and lower chutes? the 52" deck produces a vast amount of grass, so will fill the boxes very quickly, you would spend more time going back to the dumping area than actually mowing, mulching would be a much better option, if you have to collect would a tow sweeper not be better, it holds more grass, and you would not have issues with poor draught, and grass blocking in the chute ( a big problem with noise compliant machines, and damp grass , and side ejection )

On a two blade deck, such as yours, there is generally an overlap between the cutting coverage of the blades so that you do not leave a mohawk. This does not work well on turns however, and the sharper the turn, the more grass is left. Overcoming that issue brings you up to a 3 blade deck. If your mower is leaving a strip of uncut grass while cutting in a straight line, somehow you are running blades for a smaller deck, thus there is no overlap. The mandrels are offset, one slightly in front of the other so that the blades do not hit each other. I would measure under the deck and see how long a blade could be and still fit within the deck and not strike the other blade, then ask a parts store to sell you something longer than what you have now.

What type mulch kit do I get. One says stamped deck zoom 34


Mulch kits are a waste of money. If you have high lift mulching blades you keep the grass in the deck long enough to do the desired cutting. Open the deflector and block it open with a bungee strap and let the blades spread the grass,so you get no streaking or wind rowing.
CAUTION
Always discharge away from PEOPLE and Buildings and automobiles. I cut an acre here that looks like any golf course with NO MULCHING KIT. MULCHING BLADES ONLY.

The straight blade for the 42 inch mower is 138971.They cut better and are easier to sharpen and you will need them if you use a gass catcher. If you do not want to use sears for parts you may be able to find good deals on ebay.

What is the difference in a regular blade and a mulching blade?


A regular blade has a straight cutting edge, a mulching blade is bent to have a high and low cutting edge. Even if you have a mulching blade on, if the grass is too high or wet or you're cutting too low, it won't do a good job and may require a second pass.Raising your cutting height can help. Hope this helps. Dwain
