Thank You for Submitting your question to ManageMyLife.com

I can understand you concern for wanting a snow thrower attachement for your tractor. I'm sure it would save you tons of time. For your model I could not find an attachement that would fit. However, I was able to locate a snow blade that would help you with snow removal. I also found a weight kit for your tractor to help you get better traction when dealing with snow. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the parts you need. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

If you have a meter, you can check out the seat switch to make sure if it's the problem or not. But based on you being able to jumper the plug there, I have to think the problem is with the seat switch. Do check to make sure the switch is being triggered when you sit on the seat. It could just be that the switch was knocked out of place.



Let me know what you find. Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Again, I sat down very hard on the seat (I have a bad back) and heard a funny noise or like something like a faint crack. The engine ran fine until I turned offf The safety switch looked ok but I didn't test it. I cut the wires to the seat switch,removed the switch. and spliced the wires together. I tried starting the unit, and again,after depressing the brake and turning on the ignition absolutely nothing happened. I also tried starting it with the wires not spliced with no switch in line and nothing happened. I hooked up a battery charger as well and nothing happened. The lights wont even turn on. Any further help would be appreciated. I'm on a limited budget and am trying to avoid replacing any unecessart parts if possible bu this tractor is in nice shape and really want to keep her. I replaced the spark plug and air filter(s) and used fresh gas. The engine ran very smooth until I turned it off after sitting down hard on the seat. Thanks so much again for your time and wisdom. - Tom PS: I have not yet tried starting it using jumper cables from a car.

If you've cut the wires to the seat switch and connected them directly and you still get nothing then we have to assume (at this point) that the seat switch is fine. Because the engine ran that initial time, I don't know that the problem was caused by you coming down hard on the seat. that could just be circumstance with that.

Check your fuse, if you haven't already and make sure it's in good condition. Also, I have attached a drawing for you to check the starting circuit with. You will need a volt meter to check these things out. On the drawing, everywhere there is a green arrow pointing, there should be 12vdc when you have the brake down, blades off, and key in the "start" position.

Let me know what you find.

Q:

riding tractor

A:

Finding the battery dead every time you need to use it would be disappointing. I located a previous expert post for this issue and attached below. Bear in mind it is not your model, but the concept may be the same. Hope this helps!

A:

If you have a volt meter, crank the tractor and run it up full throttle and then check the voltage at the battery. It should be around 13-14VDC. If it is less than that it is most likely going to be an issue with the charging system of the engine.

If you do have 13-14VDC at full throttle then the battery is most likely just worn out/bad. Replace the battery and you should be off and running.
