Customer Question
I have a Snapper...

I have a Snapper Pro S200x 61" cut with a 27 hp Kawasaki engine. It starts right up, but when I try to disengage the parking brake it kills. This just giving this problem. Would it possibly be a relay or sensor ?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes on both

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That`s about it for now. I haven't had many issues before.
