john deere gt275 ,mower want stay engaged

On my gt275 when I pull the switch to engage the blades they have started to shut off after a few seconds .This has just started happening more frequently.

Hello gswillis,

As Mr Cheese mentioned, Check your battery condition and charging system with a multimeter.

If both test good check the adjustment on the PTO clutch as below;

There are three slots in part # 5 to insert a 0.012 feeler gage, Adjust the three nuts until you feel a little drag on the gage. Move each nut only a little at a time and keep checking because tightening one nut will tighten the gap on the other slots.





Good Luck

When you see the slots, there is a thin place between the clutch plates that you put the feeler gauge in and adjust the nuts until you obtain proper clearance.
