Blades wont ingage


I would check the belt, the pulleys and the tension of the pulleys. Any of these could be the cause of your issue. Hope this helps!

When I pull the blade lever the blades do not turn. Found that the trottle wire to pto is broken. Need instructions and a diagram on how to fix it. Thanks


just wire it back together, you don't have to worry about crossing the wires up. because it's just a hot and ground for a coil to magnitize to ingage the pto clutch.

Blades turn when not ingaged to turn


This will be due to belt drag. There is a blade brake fitted that is supposed to push brake pads onto the pulleys when the blade clutch is 'out'. If either the pads are worn, or the spring is missing/broken/dosconnected, that will be the problem.

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.

Craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut


It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

Mounting snow blade to lawn tractor


It attaches the the front of the tractor. Similar to a plow to a truck. If you don't have the brackets, you will need those, or make your own. You can see a picture of the brackets if you go to sears.com. Click on the PartsDirect link at the top, and enter the blade model number.
