Question about Cub Cadet Op's Manual Model Lt1042 Lt1045 Lt1046 Lt1050

1 Answer

I have an LT1042 Cub Cadet. It works great for about 15 minutes and then the pto clutch quits. I push the pto switch in and pull it out and it works for 5 minutes and then I have to repeat. It eventually gets so that it does it every few seconds. I have replaced the pto switch and no improvement. Is there a relay causing this or is the pto clutch getting bad? Any ideas?

The clutch fails because one of its components overheats and the electrical contact is broken. The most likely part to fail is the clutch itself and that is easy to check: just pull the relay out and short it with a thick wire .
If that fixes it then you need a new relay - replace it

If you still have problem the clutch is near its end of life. Just buy a new one - you will find it in this page, at about 2/3

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

Cub Cadet LT1042 PTO keeps shutting off after mowing several feet, will turn right back on but keeps shutting off


I have a Cub Cadet 1605 and it does the same exact thing. Try the PTO switch on the dash. I replaced mine and it works fine. Hope this helps.

I have no power to the pto on my LT1042 mower I found broken wires and fixed the but still no power. Where are the fuses that would blow? I only found one fuse and its ok


Did you check for power at the pto switch? Start with checking that, then check the wire from the PTO switch to see if it has power all the way to the PTO clutch. If there is power to the clutch, and the belt is good and routed properly it's probably the PTO clutch.

Hi...I have a 2005 Cub Cadet 2042. With the switch in ''normal'' and the PTO engaged, when going forward cutting the grass the PTO will disengage for no apparent reason. You have to push the PTO knob in...


In the cub cadet, the PTO power is maintained via a latching circuit that includes a reverse switch and a reverse relay. Locate the reverse switch that senses whether the tractor is in reverse -- either it's come loose, become misadjusted, or it's failed, or the wiring and connections are loose. You could bypass the switch to confirm this as the problem.
