SOURCE: motor stops when the pto or cutting blades are turned on or engaged.

you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor

SOURCE: pto won't engage

Belt may have come off. Check the wire from the clutch and from the switch, you may have had hungry rodents during off season storage.

My blade will not stay engaged to mow. how do I fix the problem?


When you say will not stay engaged you are saying that it comes on then cuts off ? If you turn on the PTO and it engages and the mower is not moving does the PTO stay engaged and for how long (if OK then need to check connections for PTO ) . If it is not engaging at all then we have to look at interlocks / safety switches . Give me some Details

X520 jd mower trouble


Sounds like a problem with the governor. Start it up. Don't engage the blades. Drive to a hill. Idle all the way down. Try driving up the hill. The motor should pick up when it slows while pulling up the hill. If it doesn't, the governor isn't working right.

WHEN I PULL THE BLADE ENGAGEMENT BUTTON, THE BLADES DO NOT ENGAGE.


Check the connector at the switch that engages the blades (PTO switch). Pull it off, make sure the pins are clean, and replug it firmly. Do the same at the connector at the PTO clutch, which is mounted on the engine pulley. Look for a broken wire at the same time.
It's very possible the PTO switch itself could be bad. It can be tested with an ohmmeter if you understand the internal operation. If not, just remove it and take it to Sears to get a replacement.
