Ok so I cleaned out any remaining grass and took it for a spin. Didn’t make one round and I believe the spindle belt is what broke. Called our tractor repair guy and he’ll take care of it - just not tonight. When he said we would have to take the mower deck off and PTO belt I said I’m out - it’s all yours! Hubby is paralyzed and I’m not up to the task. Thanks though for being a great resource!
Well in all fairness this guy is retired, charges a FAIR price and always comes through so no we won’t get a new repairman. Until this year we push mowed so this is just a good reminder to appreciate things. Besides we leave for the beach Friday so I’m good with him fixing while were gone.
No worries Gary- my post wasn’t well worded. What I should have said is that the repairman said the deck would have to be taken off in order to make the repair. He didn’t mean WE needed to do that. My apologies and thank you for your input!
