    I have a 1998 Grashopper 725K with 225 hours on it. It has the 25hp Kohler twin. The electric PTO doesn't engage when I pull the button out. It tries to, but I have to tap the PTO with a hammer to get it to engage. Then it doesn't immediately get up to full rpm's either. I removed the pto assembly and looked for some way to adjust it but couldn't find any. It looks as though the clutch disc is too far away from the pressure plate. THanks for any help! Dave

    save time and money by replacing the clutch.

    Engage the clutch at very low rpm's and disengage at idle. Your new clutch should last a lot longer.

    Thanks for the help. Do I replace the entire assembly or just the clutch plate? Thanks, Dave

    I bought one this year for my 725G2 it was $200 at the dealer. Don't forget to burnish it.
