Blades won't engage: Ariens 17.5 Model # 960160027. 5 months old.

TexasLawn102July 6, 2014

Just bought this bad boy 5 months ago and all of a sudden the blades don't engage when I 'pull up' the clutch to engage.

Turns on in a snap, I can drive it.

Engine sound does not change when I try to engage.

42 in. 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton 6-Speed

Belt is pretty new, I've used the tractor about 10 times.



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Best guess- the belt rolled off one of the deck pulleys.
