|B Jones||I have a 9 year old Craftsman Lawn Tractor (PN 917.255.440) that dies when I try to engage the blade. I have tried to engage it with the deck up and down. Same result. Any ideas?
|Jack||with mower turned off,first check to see if your blades turn,use gloves and see if they turn,then check the idler pulleys to see if frozen,if all is ok, then you may have a safty switch problem,this would cause motor to die (if bad) when you engage
|Bill||You probably have wire or rope wound around the cutter spindles, either on top, or under the blade guard
|Bradley||I have the exact same problem,but after testing wires,now the blades dont even try to engage.any ideas.
|butch||My tractor did this,so I unplugged the switch behind the dash.Mine has the lever that you lift up to engage them. At the bottom of the lever behind the dash is a switch. Just unplug it. Mine works.
