Can't back up with mower blades engaged

Jim Davis On my new John Deere L120 if I try to go in reverse when the baldes are engaged the engine stalls. I assume this is a safety device because if I turn off the mower blades then I can back up fine. HOW DO I DISENGAE THIS SAFETY MECHANISM? It is a real pain...
ross There should be a button on the dash called a RIO (rear implement operation) switch. Press it before you start to back up, then the engine will not die.
fez i dont think the la120 has that option the 140 i think does tho
Jean-Charles Bypass that Rio switch ( the yellow one ) to allow it to be always on. you wont have to press it ever again. Don't forget to look back!
