SOURCE: Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

SOURCE: Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It

Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt

SOURCE: The deck blades stop turning in reverse unless switch is pulled.

This is a safety feature that is not that hard to do so i say live with it.You do'nt have to hold it up just pull it up before you start backing up and once your moveing you can let go without it shutting off the deck until the pedel returns to neutral again,all tractor have it by law after a certain date so jumping around it is niot a good idea.

There is probably a switch in the reverse lever that shuts of the mower. It is probably a normally open switch so when you pull the lever to reverse it pushes the switch closed killing the engine. If you unplug the switch or cut the wires going to it, it would never think it is in reverse and you could always mow.

My husband says our mower wont cut in reverse but i have before


It will cut in reverse, but because of the rotation of the blades and where the discharge shoot is located it doesnt cut quite as good because it is try to discharge the grass on the opposite side of the deck while going backwards. Also, the is a factory installed safety switch that will kill the engine when the transmission is placed into reverse with the mower deck engaged. Because I dont wish for anyone to be accidentally injured do to the safety switch being bypassed i will not tell you how to bypass it. I know it is a pain in the **** that the thing quits everytime you just need to go back a few inches. Just find someone who will show you how to bypass it, its real simple.
