My Bob-cat ZT220-D zero turn loses power and almost stalls out when I Hit bumps and occasionally when i turn left. I think it might be electrical, Does anyone have ideas or suggestions what the problem could be- THANKS

Are you sure it's not an operator presence switch on the seat? Some have adjustments based on the weight of the operators. Others have a time delay switch that cuts out power after a few seconds rather than the millisecond your butt leaves the seat when you hit a bump. Not THAT familiar with bobcats so I don't know what they use or how old that unit is, but most newer ones have something similar to what I'm talking about.

if you have a suspension seat those operator sensors can be tricky
