Welp after last winter we decided to get a snow blower for the craftsman. Woo cool right? nah We got it together and all that fun junk pulled it onto the pad and pulled the clutch engagement only to be severely disappointed. The engine just dies when the clutch is engaged even at high rpms it goes kerput, mind you this is a 25hp kohler so theres no shortage of power at wits end though with it so info would be appreciated

Pictures of the attachment and setup?

Sounds like its one or the other, like bearings in the attachment or the motor has no power. Can you turn the snowblower over by hand easy?

Pretty much what Red sed. Make sure everything spins freely. If not, engine may be in worse shape than you thought.

check for safety switches, bypass them all, and look for other electrical gremlins.

Well the bearings are fine it spins like a top engine doesn't smoke and was spinning a 50 some inch deck last week mowing like a boss I'd get pics but there's to much crap in the way and tomorrow is D-day for a possible hernia :/ will see what happens

It's a 01 gt 5000 and 42" 2 stage blower

I wonder if you have a gearing problem. If it's just kinda cobjobbed together, perhaps you've got 'er geared too high?

Single stage or two stage blower? I would suspect the worm gear first if it's a two stage.
