I suggest replacing the Hyd Filter

Sorry, it took me a while to get the filter, drain the oil and replace it... that didn't help at all. What else do you recommend? The mower just shuts off and sometimes the engine too..
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 months ago

Hi

do you ever get an alarm when this happens or a flashing light??

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No alarm, no light...there are no lights like this on a zero turn...I'm thinking it's electrical but don't know where to start looking
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 months ago

Hi

Thank you for that

next thing to do is check the wiring harness for rub bare marks

also what you need to do is turn it and let it shut down

leave it in that position and see if you have spark at the spark plugs
