Enduro XT1 50-inch, purchased new from Home Depot 4/15. Runs

Customer Question

Enduro XT1 50-inch, purchased new from Home Depot 4/15.
Runs fine, but will not move forward or reverse. I managed to mow about 50' normally just now, after backing out of the parking place. At the first spot where I needed to reverse to make a sharp corner, it wouldn't back up, so I pushed it back and restarted the engine. Now it will not even budge forward.

Drive belt between the engine and the transmission is loose . tension spring off or the belt is off a pulley.

Thank you. That sounds relatively easy. Any tips on getting to that belt, with the mower immobile in the middle of the lawn?

Drop the deck, and use a jack to raise the front of unit as high as possible, to give better access.
