Customer reply replied 8 months ago
it goes forward good haven’t tried pto I have noticed when sitting it kinda surges like it wants to move forward
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 8 months ago

TRY THE PTO AND LET ME KNOW WHAT HAPPENS PLEASE

Will do
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 8 months ago

This sounds like a seat safety switch issue or a relay issue. if it will go forwards and the pto will engage, you will want to check the relays for continuity
