Customer Question

My craftsman lawn tractor is model###-##-####42 inch cut 17.5 Kohler engine - The blades will not engage when I pulled the PTO. The pulleys, belt, electrical connections look fine. I ordered and installed a new PTO switch and fuse and that did not solve the problem

Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

If you have a new switch, you will next need to check to make sure the power is going to the PTO by using a voltmeter and testing the wires when PTO is engaged. If you are sitting on machine with engine off and key in the on position, pull the PTO and let me know if you hear a clicking sound

I will have an opportunity to check the tractor tonight. I will check the electrical connection at the electric clutch correct. I will also sit on the tractor and pull the PTO knob with the key in the on position - I should be able to give you the results Friday the 30th.

Okay, no problem.
