My L110 was mowing fine, I hit a couple landscape rocks at edging and it quit. Does not move forward or reverse, engine runs fine, mower blades engaged fine, transmission releases so I could push into garage...White smoke when I release parking brake, no smoke when brake engaged...what is the problem?

hello welcome to just answers.. My name is Bill.

Check your drive belt you might have a fail bearing or something stuck in the belt..

Does the white smoke you see smell like rubber burning?

I think so, but i shut it down immediately, so smell not real definitely is not coming from engine, oil full

the engine runs fine right? i would rule out the engine i would check over your belt something is stuck to make it not turn.. the reason you are seeing smoke is because the engine is turning but the belt isnt.. So when you take the brake off you are tighten up the belt and the only thing turning is the engine..
