    Anybody know how to disable the safety switch that is on the foot platform (where you stand). Its such a pita to be cutting and then u move your feet and the engine starts to kill and blades stop turning because u shifted to much weight to the back of the platform and not the front.

    No one is going to tell any one on here how to disable a safty switch. They do and some one gets hurt it could end up in court. Sorry but this is one thing you are going to have to get help somewhere else.

    If you need to disable the switch for TESTING purposes, you simply unplug the connector at the switch and plug a jumper wire into the harness connector.
    You'll be able to tell if the switch is bad. Be sure and REMOVE THE JUMPER after you test , or the OPC system will not work properly!!

    The switch/connector is a pain to get to. Its located on the right rear of the motor deck just forward of the pump. If you move the platform youll see the activating rod acting on the switch. Be careful when you remove the connector as you don't wanna damage it.

    You really don't wanna mess with the relay, no need to.

    I don't know about taking that one off that means you can get off the machine and run it up and down ramps etc. Seems a little unsafe since those hydros are jerky and the brakes are junk.

    You can do that with it connected. It only shuts the machine down if the blades are turned on. If the blades are off, you can hop off and drive the machine around anyway.

    There is a relay down by the hydros where the step plate pulls the bar/spring thing. Takes some testing... turning the mower on and engaging the blades...but when you find the two correct wires you just have to take a nut and twist two of the wires together.

    Obviously this endangers your life blah blah blah...don't do this at home...blah blah.

    No ****. He gives a mustang even more power without adding better tires...so every idiot can go sideways out of the ford parking lot.

    The rules of "Don't be an idiot, and be aware of the dangers of the machine you are operating apply for both."

    I took the relay out because it broke...and was cutting my engine every two seconds even though I was standing on it. More wear and tear on my engine. Making it more reliable. I don't put my mower in any situations where it could take off my foot.

    Same goes for my ROUSH P51 Mustang sporting 700hp...I treat it with respect...because it could kill me.

    Go back to your hole.
