It would depend on what model, but could either be a deck drive problem or safety switch. With tractor off, I'd check the blades for free movement with no binding. If this is ok, then I would suspect the seat switch. The mower will not run with the deck engaged, and no operator present. It could be the seat switch is not making, so when you engage the deck it kills the motor. Test switch

Mower shuts off when blades are engaged


Remove the deck and check the blades and spindles. I suspect your issue is electrical and not mechanical though.

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

My Cub Cadet i1042 tractor shuts off when the blade is engaged. This happened after I ran over a ***** and/or stump. Every time I try to engage the blade the engine shuts off.


Check for bent blade against deck housing.Possible you bent something on mowing deck,check all spindles and pulleys.You could have something hung on blade and making contact with deck. Rarely will the motor be hurt from hitting object on rider.

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
