Lawn mowers in general can be dangerous, but riding mowers and lawn tractors are even more so. Some models have better safety features than others. You’ll want to look for, at the very least: * A system that prevents the engine from starting unless the blade is disengaged and the machine is in neutral. * An automatic blade shut-off that stops the mowing blades if you stand up rather than sit on the machine, or if you leave the mower/tractor. * A system that stops the blade if you shift into reverse, or at least a lock that requires you to make a deliberate decision to mow in reverse.

If you have a manual check for all their safety features such as seat. If the seat has an electrical plug connected to it, bypass it and see if it starts. Do the same thing with any other safety features to eliminate that problem. There are times when safety switches stick, make sure if button operated, that button moves freely in and out. Check to see if you have current going to starter to determine if the problem exists between ignition and starter.

Put a new battery on it and still wont turn over


Check all of your safety circuits: Drive safety, blade safety, seat safety.
Naturally, ensure that your key circuit is operating.

There's a safety shut-off switch below the seat, so when you're seated the switch is engaged. If you were to fall off the mower, the engine and Blades stop (safety feature).
Check the switch to see if it's operational.
Beyond that, mower may need a tune up or servicing, if it is not starting.

Riding mower dies when shifted in reverse


It should only do it when the mower is engaged. It's a safety feature, to prevent you from chopping up the people you might back over. My machine has a reverse button to override the safety switch, I have to push it everytime I want to mow backwards but I got used to it
