McKay, will your blades still engage?

This is a troubleshooting question. It is very likely that your hydro drive belt is loose, broken, or off of one of your pulleys.

Check your drive belt, and we can continue from here.

I cannot start the mower because of a dead battery. How do I contact you at another time when I have the battery charged?

There is a link to this discussion page in your email. I will get a notification to let me know when you are back. You need to look underneath your mower from the rear, to locate your transaxle drive belt.
