I have a 46" cub cadet model LT1046. I was mowing last week

Customer Question

I have a 46" cub cadet model LT1046. I was mowing last week some deep grass
and my blade got jambed up with excess grass and it started slipping. I shut it
down and restarted, when I restarted the whole deck started vibrating and running
extreemly rough. I can not figure out the exact problem for the cause. It still works
it just runs rough when I engage the bladers for mowing.

It would seem to be bad bearing or idler pulley that is bad.
