Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! On zero turn, each arm has a reverse switch that cuts off the pto in reverse. If either switch does not close , pto will not engage. Check both switches, or bypass them. Next would be to check the clutch itself, with jumper wires direct from the battery, to the clutch!
