i have a toro z 500 every now and then when i try to engage the blades it hesitates some time i will have to try it a few times before the blades start up. does this mean my clutch is going or is it some other problem.

There may be nothing but a adjustment needed, Take a look at this post; http://www.lawnsite.com/showpost.php?p=1463590&postcount=2

Resto-Rob is the master on here.

I did want to tell you that I had a similar problem and it was related to my safety switch on handlebars not making when I had my hand on left ecs handle.

I don't know if toros use adjustable clutches... I know many brands don't use clutches that are adjustable. My grasshopper clutch isn't adjustable, and it's doing the same thing. It has about 950 hours though... and I abuse the clutch.
