Customer Question

I have a jacobsen LF3800. Mower starts and mows, after a while it cuts out, it will restart, put the brake off and engine cuts out. The only way to move the mower then is to put a washer on the brake pedal sensor. What is the problem?

You have a sensor that is cutting off the engine from a fault it is detecting. Oil , temperature, or hydraulic? Look for condition that will give warning. low oil, etc.
