How do you disable the safety feature to mow in reverse? I have a White LT 1650 (2003 18 horse). When the PTO is engages, the mower will shut off.

SOURCE: mower stopped moving

If this is a manual transmission, check the drive belt from the engine back to the transmission. With the clutch pedal up (engaged) there should be no slack in the belt.

If it is a hydrostatic drive, check the drive belt and make sure it is tight. Check the transmission fluid level and make sure it is full. Refer to your owners manual as it will describe the fluid check proceedure.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: prob with PTO on craftsman mower 917.273372

There is a idler pivot plate on the mower that must be cleaned and lubricated regularly, from the left side of the mower deck if you look in the middle of the mower deck while someone engages the mower(with the engine off) you will see the pulley try and move,there is a 3/8 bolt that comes up through a bushing that this pivots on, soak that area with wd-40 and see if that improves the movement. Be sure not to get any wd-40 on the belt or pulleys. Always try and keep that area clean and lubed.

SOURCE: Mower pto engages when initially started but after

the coil in the electric PTO shorts out when it expands by heat causing it to lose it's magnetic pull and disengages- I hate to say it,but you need a new PTO clutch.

I have a LT1042, cub cadet. PTO clutch burnt up. I replaced it and the solenoid, fuse, and relay. Thinking that when PTO clutch burnt out that something else like a wire or sensor went out also.


Check all the safety switches u have a bad one look under the seat first that one is a common problem so I take it your PTO won't engage I bet your old PTO is still good the safety junk they put on these mowers fails a lot causing problems running your mower also look under the back side by the tire there is another safety switch that gets corroded that's switch is the one that will not let you mow in reverse if you want to bypass it u can just put the wires together then beware your mower will work in reverse also I hope this helps you have a great day Regards Chris

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

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.

Engine shuts down when pedal is released, and when pto is ingaged


check your Reverse Gear engage switch and PTO (blades engaged switch), either a bad switch(es) or short in wiring indicating that you are in Reverse with the blades engaged. Is there an override function so that you can mow in reverse? Check that circuit vs. the PTO and reverse gear. good luck

I have a LT 1024 series 1000 Cub Cadet lawn mower. The PTO shuts off when I'm mowing the lawn. It will run ok if I use the cruse control. I was told it might be a motion switch. Where is this motion switch...


There should be 3 safety switches on the mower. 1 will be under the seat, causing the engine to die if you were to fall off the machine while in gear. 1 is in the transmission to be sure the machine is in neutral when you go to start it, and one will be on the blades to insure they are not engaged when you go to start it. You will not want to bypass this switch, rather get it replaced as it is very important that this safety feature is working should you slip off the seat or accidentally get off the machine when it's in gear.

When cutting with pto on and going into reverse and forward again the pto cuts off


That is a safety feature. When the blades are engaged and you go into reverse, they will shut off until you get out of reverse and turn the blades on again.

PTO red light switch is on when PTO isn't, so engine won't start


Mitch...the reverse safety switch, I beieve, is designed to kill both the motor and the blades if you don't use the override button prior to trying to mow in reverse. Since I don't know the make or model of your tractor, your not wise to reverse mow unless the override switch is engaged....hope this helps..
