I am looking for information on the safety system. I was able to
disconnect the seat so it does not know if I am on it, however when I
go in reverse the PTO shuts off. This impacts the performance of my
mowing and I would prefer to defeat this. I know if voids warranty
and some would consider it a danger. The fact is the high end zero
turns can go in reverse without shutting the PTO off.
3 safety switches.
1 involving the break
1 involving the seat
1 involving backing up & PTO shutting off.
1 under seat - simply disconnected and it no longer knows that I am
not sitting on the seat. That one was easy.
2 setting the break - took the deck off and looked behind where the
break is. A push button switch sensor is there but has many wires.
Functionality: break must be set to start, break must be unset to
3. This is the one I am most concerned about. I have not found a
sensor for yet. When mowing I like to move in reverse instead of
turning sharp because it is harder on my lawn. The PTO shuts off when
turning in reverse.
1 is figured out..
2 seems a little complex but not terribly important
3 impacts my lawn as zero turning digs the lawn up. Backing up a
short bit is much better. If I could keep the PTO engaged I would
back up. I feel it is hard on the unit if It shuts off when I am
please help with # 3 if you can.
