Does engaging the pedal for the PTO lug the engine down, or does it just die like turning off the key?
If it lugs the engine down, then you need to make sure you can spin the spindle and idler pulleys by pulling the belt by hand. You should be able to slip it around the engine pulley enough with the blade pedal disengaged. Pull the belt up tight so the slack is around the engine pulley and try to spin the blade spindle and idler pulleys.
If it dies like turning off the key, then its likely a safety switch and may require a meter to test which.

The seat switch is has a shunt in the circuit that must be satisfied in order for the rest of the circuit to be happy. Make sure the connections are good, the pins inside the amp connectors will sometimes spread, push out of the lock etc. and if connection is lost will not work. Otherwise a new seat switch will be needed. You might check the PTO switch for continuity, without a diagram or schematic I am not sure how your circuit is wired. you have to have the parking brake engaged to get off the mower while the engine is running and the PTO is Dis-engaged?
I don't know if your "go" pedal eliminated this switch or not. But if with the parking brake engaged and the PTO disengaged, you lift off the seat and it dies, then its the seat switch.

Hope this helped Tim

Husqvarna Proflex 21 just stopped engaging the blades after bump over brick. Was working fine, on starting the next cut the engine goes well, lever works but no mower blades turn when lever lowered. T


Sounds like you have broken a shear pin in the drive pulley.
Shear pins are made to break if you hit something. Other wise it would cost a lot of money to repair the damage.

Engaging the blade kills the motor how to fix


jack up the mower and see if the blades will turn by hand freely. If hot you could have something stuck in there or a seized bearing.

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

Troy Built Ride-on, stalls when blade is engaged.


You may have a short in one of your safety switches. There is usually one on the seat that shuts it off if you try to get up and one on reverse if you try to back it up. I would look there to see if somehow they are grounding out

If you can get it where you can grab the blades, check and see if they float easy. You could have a seized bearing on one of your blades that is stalling out the motor as well.

Hope this helps

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
