Husqvarna Mdl YTH2448 Riding Mower - Electric PTO Not Working

I've got a Husqvarna riding mower, (Model: YTH2448) with 2 problems: 1st is a dead battery, 2nd is that the electric PTO/blade engagement does not work. I can handle the battery problem- and mention fyi only. I recently jump started the mower and it runs fine, except for the PTO problem. If anyone has any suggestions - or can point me in the direction of some helpful info, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, John B.

It sounds like your charge system is not working. If you jump the battery the engine will run with a weak battery but the pto clutch needs a strong battery to stay engaged.Try this to test it,after you jump it leav the jumper cables hooked up and try to engage the blade clutch,if it runs it is either a battery that wont take a charge or a charge system not working. If you put a volt meter on the battery while the engine is running and the voltage is 13 volts the charge system is working and the battery is bad.

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Husqvarna riding mower


Jim, I believe your tractor has an electronic knob for engagement (if I'm right in you having a matching post about a husqvarna with a knob for engagement. And it also has a PTO clutch off the motor. Having a little slack in the belt is not bad if it's not so much that it doesn't grab at at all. Does anything happen at all when you pull the switch? If nothing happens at all, the switch could be bad, the PTO clutch could need adjustment or be bad, OR you may simply have a very weak battery that isn't supplying enough current to engage the PTO properly under loads. Sometimes the batteries and charging units in riding mowers are very borderline in being able to handle the loads and a weak battery can cause unsuspected problems.

Husqvarna pto problem(?) disengaged blades to travel, would not engage after. Battery dead when checked after shutting off engine and wouldn't restart


Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

Electric blade clutch won't work and battery went dead


If you have a new battery and it went dead that quickly I would check the charging system on the mower engine. Many of them use a voltage regulator and if it goes bad it will not properly charge the battery. Get the engine running (do not engage the PTO) and use a multimeter set on DC voltage. Place the multimeter leads on the battery and you should see approximately 13-14 volts DC at the battery terminals when it is running. If less then that then it's a problem with the charging system and further tests would be needed to figure out if it is a bad regulator or charging coil.
