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