pto on swisher will not engage

ksuwildcatsAugust 9, 2013

I have a 2/3 year old swisher zero turn mower model zt2452a. I was cutting grass 2 days ago and the grass was high and wet. The blades started to bog down and the blades stop turning. Now the pto will not turn on . There is a very poor schematic in owners manual That I cant make out. I looked on the mower and found a 30 amp fuse and tested it and its fine.Any thoughts on what to check next ? Thanks Roger

Going to have to check for voltage both going into and out of the fuse. Check for voltage at the clutch.

This may not be your brand clutch, but the trouble shooting should be similar-

Thanks for the help. What i did today was go out and turn the pto switch on and off a few times and it starting working again. Im thinking the switch might be on its way out. I have only had this mower about 3 years and it sits out side year around , but get covered in winter. Thanks again BG and Bill
