cutter blades will not engage on lawn tractor

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

Craftsman Lawn Tractor - Model #917.28858

Everything seems fine - tractor runs and rides. But, mower blades do not engage when pulling the red button.

I removed mower deck to check for obstructions ... everything looked clear. Blades turn easily without belt. Belt (and tractor) are brand new. When i look underneath as someone tries to engage the blades, I do not see the pulley turning ... the pulley that runs off the drive system I presume.

I know that this can be a very inconvenient problem, especially on a new machine. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide some information and troubleshooting for the issue. I would suggest that you check the tenison on the belt and making sure it's turning freely. I hope this helps.
