hey guys, having some problems with my lt133.
unit is in ok condition, wish i could afford something new, but not this year.
anyway, at start of season, it sat since last fall leave cleanup,
i went to start it, and nothing, charged the battery, nothing.
seemed the key was doing nothing, so i jumped the solenoid,
got it going and it was running strong as ever.
but, when i engage the blades, the engine is sputtering like the dickens,
wants to cut off, but keeps runnning, just sputtering like mad.
so it was not used all summer, and now its time for fall leaves again, and with 2 acres of heavy tall oaks, it is a must have for fall clean up.
i got it running today, but again, as soon as i engage the blades,
it is cutting out, like intermittely loosing ground or something.
any suggestions will help,
ive downloaded and printed the schematics out of the manual, and im going to
go pull the battery and start doing some testing.

thanks in advance

ok, well, ignore this one.
its all good.
turns out, i had some critters nested up in it,
made a nest under the engine air cover, and chewed thru a
ground wire.
the ground is a continuous loop thru all the safetys then back to the solenoid
and it was cut.
thanks for anyone whom took a peek

Welcome to GTTalk. Thanks for posting the solution to the problem. Mice and such can cause some major damage when they move into equipment.
