Activating the PTO causes the engine to lose power

Hello Guys,

Activating the PTO switch on my 2 year old Ferris ProCut S causes the engine to suddenly lose power, and even stall at times. What could be the reason for this?


Hello Afnan,

If you’re mowing very tall grass with a lower than sufficient cutting height, it puts undue load on the engine and can cause it to stall – especially if the grass is also wet. I suggest setting a higher deck height and then mowing again at the desired height. This can also happen if the blades have not been securely fastened to the stalk after replacement.
