Why won't the blades engage on my riding mower 54" mtd 13ap625k730?


You have probably thrown the belt for the blades. If it continues to throw the bet check the tensioner.

I have a 42" mtd lawn tractor. The blades do not


The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?

How too replace the blade drive belt on a murray lawn mower


Its actually really easy. First, determine the size of your mower deck. Is it 30" 42" 54" etc. Then, go to a home improvement store like Lowes or The Home Depot (or an online retailer.) Search for a replacement belt for your deck size. Removing the old one is easy. Pry back the retainers on the engine pulley and slip the belt off of the pulley. This should make it very easy to pull off the mower deck. Installation is the opposite of removal. Make sure you note the belt arrangement for proper installation. Good luck!

Motor stops when the pto or cutting blades are turned on or engaged.


you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor
