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

Unfortunately there is no safety that will shut the blades off if they get overloaded with grass. If the deck stopped working and now won't come back on you either have a belt issue or an electric clutch issue that is causing the mower deck to not operate now. Have you checked the mower deck belt and belt tension? Do you hear the electric clutch kicking on now when you pull the pto switch?
