SOURCE: PTO does not engage

if your belt was tight when you finished installing it and all the pulleys that it went around are free turning by hand and lining up reasonably well you should be ok.
to the clutch
are you good with a volt meter 12volts dc?

Find your connector close to the clutch
unhook it from the clutch
take your volt meter and engage your red knob (Have the key on and parking brake applied)check your voltage to the connector
Do you have 12volts dc?if so your clutch should work if not you need to trace the wire back to the red knob
check all of your fuses check all of your safety switches.

Or have a 12 volt source (a battery )and hook it briefly to the connector you found directly to the clutch connector pos. and neg. from your battery you should hear an audible CLICK if so your clutch is good if not you are losing 12 volts back toward the red knob
this is the best way to check the clutch while it is still on the machine.
if its the bad clutch get your wallet out they are expensive.
to remove it unlosen center bolt on the crankshaft
remove or move belt guards out of the way and whole assembly should slide right off, note any shims and spacers that may come down with it and their locations
put back the same way it came off and tighten center bolt to 55 ft.lbs.
goodluck

SOURCE: not sure, but i think the electronic clutch is not

The electric clutch is to power the blades/mower deck. There is a belt that drives the hydrostatic pumps to power the wheels. Make sure the Parking brake is OFF. Could be a belt, spring, idler pulley.

When running the mower, it shuts off immediately when trying to engage blades(pto)


Hi Digger:
I've two possibles come to mind for you to check.
1) Engine OFF - Make sure that all of the blades and pulleys can turn freely.
2) Engine OFF - Double check belt routing. Move engage lever ON/Off and look at what movement happens. It may be that the belt is on the wrong side af a mounting flange and binds when engaged.
Cheerfuls.

Zero force 50 Cub Cadet runs fine , but when the mower deck switch is pulled , blades do not turn, does not engage


This would be one of a few different things, first check to make sure the belt is on properly and hasnt came off any pulleys, next check the clutch relay and fuse, next check the pto switch, and if all those check out, check the clutch for engagement, if it tries to engage with pto switch, then it may just need adjusted, if it doesn't try to engage, the clutch will need replaced, but check the other possible causes first.

Engage the blades and then drop the deckand the engine dies


Could be in safety circuit. or could be excessive load on the motor with deck running. Check all safetys, like seat switch, clutch switch, pto switch. You didn't indicate what type of tractor you have,

MY TRACTOR RUNS FINE& STOPS LIKE IT SHOULD. THE BLADES DO NOT TURN WITH THE PTO SWITCH ENGAGED


if this is a newer mower then the problem is usually a safty switch is not being completed and this is stopping the blades from turning on, most mowers have a switch under the seat that has to be shorted out in order for the pto to work, this can be checked by connecting the two wires going to the switch together, and seeing if this solves the problem. Does it sound like the pto is trying to turn on if this is the case then you might find you have a siezed up bearing that is stopping the pto from engaging but my guess is a safty switch is malfunctioning and causing the pto tp not turn on, Hope This Helps Don

Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage


I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.
