Question about Garden

2 Answers

Mower starts and runs fine. Engine does not cut out, nor does the engine surge. After mowing for 5 minutes or so the when I turn a corner the power seems to fade. The throttle can be fully depressed, but the mower just slows to a crawl. I have changed the air filter cover. I do not believe that the fuel filter is clogged because the engine continues to run fine even with the loss of forward motion. Any suggestions?

    rpm stays the same. No change in engine revs, only in mower speed - it drops way off.
    Think a belt problem?
    Thanks for your help?

I would say that it is a belt if the power only seems to fade when you are turning a corner. Does the engine rpm stay the same? Or is it going way down, back to an idle?

Changed filter, oil, full of gas checked gas flow everything is good , when I start m lawn mower it runs , when I engage my pto and start mowing for about 5 minutes it just quits


if this is got the 27 hp kohler engine, I know exactly whats wrong with it , due to grass and engine oil building up in a short time under cylinder heads , it actually makes a tight ball of grass and stuff there !! this holds the engine heat and ruins the ign module that's just above it there , I put two on in one season ( tractor runs 6-10 hrs day 6 days a week ) I finally gave up I bought a Kawasaki 27 hp twin and installed it , now its run for two seasons and no problems
engaging the pto has nothing to do with it , it would cut off if you just drove it around for 15 minutes

When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

Engine cutting off


Depends on how it cuts off. If it gradually slows down over a few minutes or surges, it's likely the carburetor needs to be cleaned and rebuilt. But if it's an immediate cut off, it's likely to be a safety switch such as the one that shuts down the engine when you get off the seat if the mower is running. Sometimes this happens frequently to a light person who bounces on the seat when mowing.
