    i have a toro z 500 every now and then when i try to engage the blades it hesitates some time i will have to try it a few times before the blades start up. does this mean my clutch is going or is it some other problem.

    Resto-Rob is the master on here.

    I did want to tell you that I had a similar problem and it was related to my safety switch on handlebars not making when I had my hand on left ecs handle.

    I don't know if toros use adjustable clutches... I know many brands don't use clutches that are adjustable. My grasshopper clutch isn't adjustable, and it's doing the same thing. It has about 950 hours though... and I abuse the clutch.
