I have a Kubota G21 with over 1000 hours on the clock.
Just recently it has started to cut out occasionally whilst mowing-I have renewed the safety cut out switch under the drivers seat but this has not cured the problem.If I disengage the mower deck the engine runs no problem, sometimes re engaging the deck stops the engine, other times it doesnt.I have a feeling there is maybe a second cut out switch somewhere on the mower linked to the mower deck engage mechanism, but for the life on me I cant find anything....Help!!!

Welcome to the forum Iain! :)

Not being familiar with Kubotas I'm not going to be much help. Only a couple thoughts, does it have a safety engine cutout for when the blades are on and shifting into reverse? If so there would be a switch around the reverse pedal linkage to the transmission somewhere that might be the problem. Could also be a electrical relay somewhere in the circuit causing the problems.

Hi Mark-thanks for the reply.I have found one cut out safety under the seat.Checked it out and its Ok.As you suggested there's maybe another lurking somewhere under the bodywork out of sight.I'll keep looking-ciao-Iain.

Sounds like a idler pulley are one of the spindels on the deck may be suspect. When the bearing get hot they do strange things just before you burn the belt up.
