Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

SOURCE: A short in the pto wiring perhaps?

Form what you are desribing you have a direct short, probaly in the wiring going to pto. I t has rubbed somewhere and is causing your short. Unplug the wires at connector close to your pto clutch and try it again and see if fuse stuill blows after you unhook it.

If the fuse still blows it is in the wiring going back up to thje switch. If the fuse does not blow after unhooking wiring connector the problem is in the clutch.

check your spacers to be sure you havent locked the clutch assembly directly to the motor shaft

SOURCE: Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

SOURCE: pto not engaging blades

Lets start from the beginning:

Do you have power going to the switch you need to check this with a volt meter it should read between 12 and 13 volts with thew engine off

if you have power to the switch next we need to check to see if there is power coming out of the switch again check with a volt meter.

if you have power coming out of the switch then we need to see f power is getting to the relay on the battery terminal and the switch terminal and if there is power to both terminals then we need to see if the relay is functioning correctly ( check output terminal with voltmeter)

If we have power to and through the relay we need to see if we are getting power to the clutch ( check this at the clutch) if there is no power to the clutch trace your wires back until you find power and make the repair. If ther is power to the clutch but the clutch does not engage you may have an open ground meaning the circuit is not complete again check your wiring. If everything checks out but the clutch does not engage then you have a bad / open in your clutch hope this helps

SOURCE: cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged

Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Why will the blades not engage on my 2009cubcadet 1040


PTO switch maybe bad or fuses blown. Or possible a safety switch is bad. If none of those the PTO clutch is bad.

Zero force 50 Cub Cadet runs fine , but when the mower deck switch is pulled , blades do not turn, does not engage


This would be one of a few different things, first check to make sure the belt is on properly and hasnt came off any pulleys, next check the clutch relay and fuse, next check the pto switch, and if all those check out, check the clutch for engagement, if it tries to engage with pto switch, then it may just need adjusted, if it doesn't try to engage, the clutch will need replaced, but check the other possible causes first.

PTO engages, but, keeps becoming disengaged on LT1042.


Cub Cadets have one of two types of PTOs. The most common is gear driven. The gear teeth of the PTO shaft are very small and thin. If the PTO is engaged without proper clutch action, the gear teeth grind together, trying to engage. A little wear on these gears will cause the surface of the gears to become beveled, and when the PTO comes under load, the beveled surfaces of the gear teeth force the gear lock to disengage. The only option is to replace the worn gears...

The second type of PTO drive is electric clutch. This is a disc type clutch that is engaged by energizing an electromagnet built into the clutch pack... any disruption of electrical power to the clutch pack while under load will cause the clutch to disengage and then possibly try to engage while under load and casues the clutch pack to slip and will overheat almost instantly...

The blades run all the time on my cub cadet 1042, even if the PTO is off


If your cub has an electric pto clutch it may be fused. Or the switch is stuck on. You can check the switch with multitester to see if its energized all the time. If not the clutch is probably fused. Which is cause for replacement. Adjustment only works with clutches that wont engage.

If you pto is mechanically engaged look for obstructions in the lever pathway. Also check for stuck idler pulleys.

Be careful and good luck!

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!
