New to the forum. Purchased a 2013 Brutus HD PTO with snow blower fall of 2014. Also got the blade and the bucket. Used the blade and works great. Finally able to blow some snow. Heavy wet snow and moving to fast bogged it down and killed it. Now will not even try to start. Think I blew a fuse. Finally after a lot of research, found out where the fuse box is. Anyone had this problem before? Thoughts whether fuse or relay?

I have also been reading the posts about the command lever upgrade or fix. My machine crawls up hills but on the straights is fine. Should I be talking to a dealer?

Make sure the PTO button is down, the gear shift lever is in park, and also while holding the key in the start position rock the treadle peddle back and forth in case it's not aligned right.
If it's crawling up a hill at less than 10mph it needs a hydrostatic drive adjustment. If it's under warranty let the dealer do it, and have them put the new command lever in under warranty.

Ketchn, thank you. Went thru all the fuses, battery, wiggled wires. Checked the start and had power to the switch. Will try rocking the treadle peddle next time should it happen again. It needs the new command lever, so will be talking to my dealer. Appreciate the response.
