Spring breakage is usually caused by excessive vibration on the deck. Can be blades damaged, or bearings out in the spindles for the blades, ot belt and pulleys out of alignment. Check the blades and spindles with the belt loose or off by turning each one and feeling for bad bearing and see if the blades are running true.
