Timecutter SW5000 brake module

This is the searing wheel model.



Anyone ever completely bypass the brake module on these things? I've gone through 3 of them in the past year and still have more mowing to be done this year!


Toro support is of no help they just want to push another module to me at $100 each. The machine works great when it decides to run but as of now it will only start. Soon as any movement is attempted (break off or PTO engagement) the engine dies and will no longer respond to the key. Have to wait till something cools down or ?? before I can attempt again.



I've had it with this interface and want to bypass the entire thing. I have no hills, kids or critters around to worry about so the interfaces are not an issue (I know enough not to run things when I can get myself or others hurt or in danger).


Anyone do this yet?


Thanks.


PS - As this machine is currently unreliable I purchased a Z-Master 3000 for my lawn, but I'd love to get this Timecutter going to cut down on total mow time (with my wife helping).
