Customer Question

My Cub Cadet 1054 blows 20A fuse when I engage the PTO.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: All day. At first it was only when I would go in reverse with the reverse button engaged. Now as soon as I engage PTO. I made the mistake of changing the fuse with the PTO knob engaged, and it blew right away.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can! :)
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Nothing I can think of ...

Have you examined the wires to the pto clutch on the bottom of the engine? They are subject to being damaged, or ripped off!
