PTO problems?

    I'm a newbie to this forum, so I hope I've picked the right category.

    I have an MTD pro 2554 ZTR (please keep the jeers to a minimum) to keep about 4ac mowed. Upon initial start, the blades engage just fine.

    Sometimes I'll hop off to remove limbs out of my path. When I get back on & engage the PTO, the blades won't start back up immediately. It's like the PTO has a mind of it's own once the mower is warmed up good.

    This has to be a simple problem, but I'm not sure what the symptoms point to.

    I'm glad I found this forum - I'm a "mower nut".

    Post this in the mechanic and repair forum. Also, provide us with the serial and model #'s of your unit.
