Customer Question
Good morning I was...

Good morning I was mowing yesterday, stopped the mower to move a chair out of my way, and the blades would not reengage when I tried. I have a D140 JD mower

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Let me pull the serial

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

There is power - I'm thinking a fuse - I checked the fuse up top and it is fine, but I've heard there is a separate fuse for the blades - but I don't know where to look. I doubt it is the clutch.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Agriculture Mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not really - it has 400 hours on the engine.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

I am sorry to hear you are having this issue.

I go offline between 3-4 Pm CST. M-F

If you have voltage to the PTO clutch then it did fail. Remove it and check it with a battery jumper wire

it should click when putting voltage to it.

I hope this helps you.

I’ve already purchased a new PTO and swapped it out with no change.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

Hi,

Yes, I see that but you need to check if you have battery voltage there

at the PTO plug.
