Husky cth224t ride on mower

My Husky cth224t mower was parked up for 6 months because the drive belt slipped off and didnt have the time or inclination to do it so used the ever faithful bullet proof mountfield 1436. Anyhow, now ive replaced the drive belt and it works fine but when i pull the switch for the cutters to engage the engine slows and nearly stalls. Its like its put under huge strain, like something is stuck under the deck rather than an electrical fault but when i put my hand under the deck and spin the blades they are free and turn easily. Any ideas?

just been for another look now ive cooled down a bit, I took the belt off the clutch pulley to eliminate the deck and the engine stalls when you turn the clutch on, it just dies like its been turned off. Frustrating!!!!!!

so it turns out its not the deck but a electrical fault somewhere,


Hi Graeme and welcome to TGMF.

What happens with some machines when belt comes off or shreds and comes off, the belt or part of it can get itself jammed in the electric clutch making it force the brake on, or lust generally jamming it up.  That would be where I would look first.
