Customer Question

Have a cub 1529 and my issue is that when I let up on the foot pedal the mower deck shuts off and I have to push and re pull the pto switch. If I hold foot pedal down it cuts fine or if at idle then the pto stays running. I checked the plug on clutch and seems fine.

How is battery voltage? Clutch will drop out if the voltage drops below 12 volts. When you let up on the pedal , does the battery voltage drop? Can be weak battery, or charging system not keeping up with battery demand.
