    Got a grasshopper 721D 1996 model.
    Mower deck will not engage; checked all fuses and connections; bought a new PTO switch but have not installed it yet.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance for all the help!

    Probably the PTO switch. If that does not fix it, check for a dirty connection where the plug on the clutch hooks to the main wiring pigtail. connection might be dirty, or might be a loose wire in the plug connector.

    If the PTO doesnt engage or make any noise it could be either the switch or the clutch itself. hope the info is of some use.

    PTO switch came in yesterday afternoon and it worked like a charm.

  5. get a spare and keep it in the truck.
