Craftsman LT 2000 tractor

I'd like to know if there's a way to defeat or overide the shutdown function when I try to go in reverse with the mower blades spinning. To have to disengage the blades every single time I want to change directions on the tractor is a huge waste of time. I've thought about always moving forward with the blades running but even with the good turning radius I need to travel further to eventually get the cut I want & that uses more gas. The model number is 247.288841, but I'm not completely sure. I bought it new in June 2011. I don't know if it's an electrical issue to modify or if it's mechanical. I have a feeling that there may be some legalities involved with keeping the blades spinning but who knows. We're competent adults using power equipment here & if shaving off 10 to 15 minutes on cutting my grass I'll welcome bypassing any shut down feature! My yard is kind of bumpy in spots & the tractor momentarily starts to shutoff when I get lifted from the seat slighty. That gets annoying. Any advice and/or solutions to my issues will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

I understand how it can be a concern when it comes to the performance of your tractor. I have taken the time to research your model on the Manage My Life website and have came across the owners manual to your model . While you are waiting for a detailed response from an expert I have attached the link below.

Due to legal issues, I cannot give advice or describe to you how to defeat the safety circuits that were put in place from the manufacturer. I completely understand the frustration with this but Sears is very firm on this subject. I'll also add: As much as the safety devices and features can be irritating sometimes, I've seen enough bad things happen to good people to where I flat out advise against defeating the safety circuits.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
