3 year old MTD 608 Garden tractor. I use this for mowing and take the
46" deck off for use with a 42" snow blade. The tractor has a column
mounted lever for actuation of the pto for the belt driven mower deck.
This year, I'm having trouble with the pto lever. Won't stay in the
off position while pushing snow and consequently have to hold the
lever in the lower position to go in reverse. Part of the mower
safety that it won't reverse while the blades are activated. I've
checked the manual exploded view and can't find that any springs are
missing. Is there anything else I should check on this unit?
