Riding Lawn Mower Problem - Dies when PTO engaged
When I pull the switch to engage the PTO, the engine bogs down real quick and dies. It sounds almost like it has too much choke or something (but that's not it).
It is a John Deere L130. I got this mower used as a hand down. It has not been abused or anything, but we aren't sure why this is happening. Any ideas?
It moves (I can see the grass clippings come out for a milli-second) but then it bogs down and dies.
PS. This is my first riding mower. I am a total novice and what to check for.
