    I have a brand new super z and after I washed my deck today my blades did not want to turn on. I did not wet the control panel so i have no idea what happened. Has anyone else had trouble with this on their super z? Ifso what was the problem switch, relay or something else?

    When you engage the PTO, do you hear anything? a click anything at all?
    Is your deck belt on and tight?
    Check your fuse on your control panel.
    Very wierd.....

    It was the relay that was bad. The mower is 2 months old and thats the second relay that went bad. The first was the fan for oil cooler. Thats not the best way to have those relays under that plate.
