    disable safety switches

    I have a model L100 I use for pushing snow only. I have no mower. Therefore I would like to disable seat switch. I read that if the 4 wires from the seat safety switch are cut and taped individually everything will work properly. THe clutch switch is still operating.
    Is there anyone out there that have experienced this ?

    If you want to be able to get off with it running you can just set the park brake and get off.

    I have no idea about l100 wiring, but I’ve never seen a seat switch be bypassed by unplugging it.

    Does this forum not have rules about disabling safety devices?

    Nope. It’s your tractor, do what you want with it.

    Oh okay, sweet. On other sites that's a sacred topic. Something something lawyers.

    My seat safety switch only has 2 wires. So I don't know what your 4 wires are. All I did was unplug it, made a jumper wire and plugged it in. Works like a charm.
