Go to a smaller fuse, but it sounds like the PTO is shorted somewhere:

When i turn on the pto it blows the pto fuse


Make sure everything is able to move freely with the engine off. If the blades are not damaged or stuck, and the belt will rotate, it is either a bad electric clutch, the PTO switch or you have a wire(s) that is shorting to ground.

When i turn on the pto it blows the 7.5 pto fuse


Sounds like you have either a dead short causing the fuse to blow, or something is binding and causing the fuse to blow. Check the mechanical end first, does everything move freely? Then check for exposed wires or sparks when engaging the PTO.

go to partstree.com and they should have wiring diagrams for your mower, should be a switch or something if the clutch works when you hook it to a battery (seat switch, pto switch, parking brake switch, even the neutral safety switches) also check your ground hook ups

sounds like your electric clutch is prob bad check to make sure wires are not bare touching something, the clutches do go bad eventually like any other electrical part, disc the pigtail and try fuse, if it blows then I would consider a clutch

Blows fuse for blade clutch after 20 to 30 secounds ...


Most likely there is an internal short in the PTO clutch, but it could also be in the wiring, which is way cheaper to fix! So, with the engine off, get down on the ground, find the PTO clutch (it's between the two pulleys under the motor) and trace the wires that go to it. Look for a worn spot in the insulation anywhere, especially likely where the wires pass through the chassis or if they've touched a belt or other moving part. If you find a wiring problem, just splice in a new wire.
Ok, if you found nothing, then unplug the connector that connects the wires from the PTO. Start the engine, drive around, engage the PTO switch (of course, the blades won't spin). If the PTO fuse does not blow, you've proven the problem is in the PTO clutch and you must replace it ($150 or so, sorry!). If the fuse does blow, that's good news, you just have a short in the wiring or in the PTO switch itself. Disconnect the wires from the switch to differentiate those two possibilities. The PTO switch isn't too expensive either. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful.

Cub Cadet 1861 amp light comes on when the PTO is engaged and after mowing for a short time the PTO disengages and now the 30 amp fuse blows and stops the engine


Sounds like you have a short circuit, either in the PTO clutch, or in the wiring that goes to it. Inspect the wiring for any obvious spots where insulation has rubbed off or burned. Also look at the wiring at the back of the PTO engagement switch for these signs. Before buying an expensive PTO clutch, unplug its connector. Drive around with the PTO switch on (even though the PTO won't activate and the blades won't be engaged). If the fuse doesn't blow, the problem must be within the PTO clutch. If the fuse still blows, it must be in the PTO switch or the wiring from there to the clutch. Use an ohmmeter to trace and find the short. Good luck!
