Advise To Readers Complained About Deere Riding Mower Features That Stop The Mower Blades
Don Jaster, Bruce, Wis.: “In your last issue, two separate readers complained about Deere riding mower features that stop the mower blades when you shift into reverse. My advice is to just take a look at the wiring. Riding mowers are generally not over-engineered so there’s probably a microswitch attached to the linkage of the reversing mechanism that shuts off the blades. On my MTD mower, the engine actually shuts off. There’s a microswitch under the shroud on the shifter. You can either just bend the switch out of the way, or loosen it so the shifter doesn’t hit it. Depending on how your machine is wired, you might just cut off two wires and connect them together.”
