  2. PTO kills engine

    Ok, new to the site. I did read some other post similar to the issue I'm having. Engine stalls when PTO is engaged. Ok, engine stalls when I slowly pull the PTO switch up. Not enough to to engage PTO. But just pulling up a little stalls motor. Must be a safety switch? I was cutting...
  3. Scag SWZ Electrical Gremlin

    I picked up a Scag SWZ48-14KA. It came from a friend who used it until getting a zero turn. The PTO quit engaging on him. It is a very old model 1993 or so. It has an FC420V Kawasaki motor. I can get it to run (starts on first pull). It travel easily and seems like all of the interlocks are...
  4. BCS 749-PS Troubleshooting

    I've got a question for anybody who can tell me about this BCS walk-behind tractor I've got, model number 749-PS.

    Guys, I've had my cub for 12 years and have very few issues. I currently have less than 400 hrs. At the end of last season during my last mow my pto stopped. I checked my fuses and found one blown. When I changed it...nothing. I ended up changing the switch and it began to work; well, for...
  6. New PTO Clutch still won't engage??

    I've been pulling out my hair all day about this and can't figure it out. Last week the blades on my Hustler super z with a 25 kawi started giving me problems engaging. Sometimes they would even cut off during a yard, but would normally turn right back on when I worked the switch. It started...

  8. Start and stopping mower blades

    So this is not a how you do it question, this is a usage question. When mowing large areas, like parking lots, is it better to stop the blades to move to a new area then start again or just leave them running. I know it's safer to stop them then start again but what about clutch/pto drive...

    I need some help. I've looked at wiring diagrams till my eyes bleed. Borrowed the neighbors mower to cut my grass before I left for vacation. I hate doing that when I've got the biggest mower in the neighborhood (3 acre lots). Whenever I engage my hydro levers, engine dies. Parking brake on...

    My Scag walk-behind, pull start older model sucked up a piece of plastic the other day while cutting & has trouble engaging the blades at full throttle continuous.

  18. Blades won't engage Correctly-Scag Walk Behind

    I have a 52" Advantage deck Scag walk behind, whenever I try to engage the blades the mower sounds like it tries to get them going but a belt doesn't catch or doesn't have enough power or something. It makes the initial sound of starting the blades, but then sounds like they just get shut off...
  19. Troy-Bilt PTO Failure

    Man I'm hoping someone here can help me diagnose this. I have a Troy-Bilt GTX20 Garden Tractor (Model 13706). When the mower is started (cold) the PTO will engage fine. After a relatively short time with the PTO engaged, it will either cut out completely or the RPMs will drop extremely low...
  20. Exmark LazerZ deck failure

    I was mowing the other day and all of a sudden my mowing deck shut off. Switch was still up and on. I pushed the switch down and up a couple time and no response.
