SOURCE: new troy bilt mower (pony) when you put it in

It is a safety feature. You can disconnect it if you want. Where ever you place the tractor in reverse there will be a switch . Try disconnecting the switch an use a piece of wire to act as a jumper. You will put the piece of wire with insulation on it so it doesn't short out into the ends of the wire harness that is comming to the switch. Once the jumper is installed try starting the tractor and engage the blades and put in reverse. If it does not shut off and runs alright then you can cut the end off of the wire and using a wire connector join the two wires and wrap with electrical tape. YOU HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL AFTER YOU DO THIS BECAUSE THE BLADES WON'T SHUT OFF WHEN IN REVERSE!!!
Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: are the nuts holding on the blades reverse threaded?

If a blade, when viewed from above, rotates clockwise, it will have right-handed threads. This is because the shaft is turning to the right, and the resistance imparted on the blade will tend to tighten a right-handed fastener. If a blade rotates counter-clockwise it will have a left-handed fastener. I don't know this mower, but this is a universal thing.

Troy bilt mower pony


are your blades engaged when you try to do this??
if so it is a back up safety feature from factory,turn blades off and try?
Or put the ignition switch in the position that will keep the mower running when you go in reverse with the blades on or push a button on dash when you go in reverse,probably not on yours just some of the features on some models and just something to look for on yours

My 50" troy bilt zero


All riding mowers have a seat safety, blade engage safety and a brake clutch safety, some mowers have a reverse mowing safety. Seat under the seat, blade and brake you will have to check the linkages underneath, and if there is a reverse mowing one I have seen them near the shifter handle right under the fender.

Put a new battery on it and still wont turn over


Check all of your safety circuits: Drive safety, blade safety, seat safety.
Naturally, ensure that your key circuit is operating.

Troy bilt self propelled assembled in the box got it out of the box and finished setup but when it came to the pull start cord it would not pull am i missing something?


The unit has a safety feature that stops the engine with a brake when you release the handle. In order to start the engine you have to release this brake by squeezing the handle lever as if you were mowing. You have to hold this lever in that position as you pull the cord.

Put mower in reverse, turned it off and mower


There are safety interlocks on zero turn mowers. These prevent starting unless you have: 1. the handles in 'neutral' position 2. the brake on 3. the mower engagement (PTO) switch off 4. yourself in the seat.
Chances are one of these conditions hasn't been met. Since you were reversing when it happened, perhaps you haven't got the handles back to neutral position?

Troy bilt mower self propelled 21". Belt has come off


Take the three screws out of the belt cover. One screw in behind each back wheel. The other is under the mower near the shaft to blade. Remove the tension spring off the transmission. Then remove blade and the cover comes off. You then can put the belt back on. Sounds like fun don't it!
