Customer Question

I have a Cub Cadet Model 1250 and it blew the PTO fuse when I was mowing my lawn. I replace the fuse and it blew that one immediately. What should I look for?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: It just happened yesterday. The tractor runs fine, but PTO fuse blows when the PTO is engaged to power the mower.
JA: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: It is a Cub Cadet 1250 about 1980.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If it is something I can fix, yes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: It has been running fine and the mower has been working fine.
