Question about Garden

Open Question

My Cub Cadet RZT 50 PTO disengages occassionally. I noticed that although the clutch stays firm the shaft seems to be out of balence and wobbles. The left steering arm if shaken gets the PTO working again. Should I be concerned about the wobble or is that normal? Is there a way to bipass the reverse safety switch and is that advisable?

SOURCE: pto blows the fuse everytime i engage it on my rzt

Wire harness for the PTO on the RZT's is designed dangerously near the drive pulley. After time, the harness drops and comes in contact with the pulley which grinds through the coating and shorts out the circuit. Repair (tape up) the wiring, relocate the the wire to the opposite side of the crank pulley (may have to zip-tie in place) - shouldn't be a problem anymore.

New pto switch stoped working after 4 mowings


Maybe the problem wasn't the PTO switch. My Cub Cadet RZT PTO would disengage when I backed up and then failed to re-engage. I was able to isolate my problem to the safety switches at the base of the steering levers. I sprayed them with WD40 and they've been fine. Just a thought and worth checking. I hope this helps.

On a rzt 42. The pto clutch bolt loosens and clutch falls off with use of 10 minutes or less. How do I fix?


The PTO clutch has a bolt that goes through it and into the vertical shaft of the engine. MANY of the PTO clutches have a large spacing washer that goes on before the PTO clutch is slipped onto the shaft. If the washer was lost when the clutch was changed, the bolt might be bottoming out in the shaft rather than tightening on the threads like it should. I'd get a diagram for your model and make sure all parts are in place.

You can check the clutch by taking a wire from the ground and a wire from the positive side of the battery and energizing the clutch directly with the belt off to see if thats it. It could simply be a wire loose in the connection on the clutch....their soldered on.
