Hey everybody! I have a Wright Stander that went down this weekend. It is a 52" 17HP Kawasaki with recoil start. I had turned the mower off after mowing and started it up about five minutes later. When I pulled the switch to engage the blades, the blades would not come on. When I step off the platform with the blades in the "on" position the engine still dies, so the saftey is still working. I know it could be the clutch, but what else could it be and how can I test the clutch to make sure that is the problem? All the belts are in good condition. The machine still operates and moves, the blades just wont engage... Thanks for your replys!!!!
