Customer Question

I have a Toro Titan ZX4820 zero turn mower. I have mowed my grass and everything went fine. I then turned off the mower and 'cleaned' it with a leaf blower. I can now start the mower just fine but as soon as I try to lower the arms to drive it the engine shuts off. I assume it is the seat safety switch or the parking brake. They both appear fine.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old the engine is? And has it done anything like this in the past?
Customer: it is 4 years old. no past problems
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: if I can - assuming it is simple
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no

Seat safety switch most likely as when you try to drive it, it believes no one is on the machine. Can you engage the blades?
