Have a troy-built bronco...

Have a troy-built bronco riding mower blades will not engage, belts appear to be okay what do you think the problem may be.

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Troy-built, Bronco is the model. I would estimate it's about five years old.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I hope so.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so.
