HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

This sounds likes the output shaft bearing is locking up on you. I have seen this happen often on the Scag machines. You will need to either remove the wheel motor and replace the output bearing or replace the entire wheel motor.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
