I don't know.Ibought ,I bought it from someone who moved out of state.Engene quits when deck blades are engaged.
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 4 months ago

Thanks for your response. Many times this problem occurs after either your seat safety switch, or the connector that connects to your seat safety switch has failed.

Lift your seat and check for two yellow wires attached to a switch. It should be on the left side, near where your seat pivots.

Let’s try something. Remove your deck belt from the pulley that is under your engine, then start your engine and then attempt to engage your blades.
