Hi, this is how to trouble shoot your mower when it doesn't engage in gear....

If you physically can not move the gear shift lever into gear, it could be a problem with the shifter linkage or the transmission. If you can select a gear by moving the the lever which is attached directly to the transmission, it is the linkage. If the lever moves into a gear but the mower doesn't move, it could be a broken belt or a bad transmission.

As for the blades shutting offf when you go in reverse, it should have a reverse mow safety switch. Some mowers have them, some do not. In regards to the electric PTO switch, and you would have to take electical measurement when it happens, the coil in the electic PTO clutch may be starting to go bad.

Cannot have blades engauged when in reverse mower stalls


Hello,

You are right, the mower has a disconnect for the pto when you try to mow in reverse. You need to turn the key to the mow in reverse position, and now you can mow going backwards.


Hope this helps, Matt
