    Blades won't engage

    I have a ferris zero turn riding mower, the mower starts and runs fine but when I lift the knob to engage blades nothing happens, not even a sound! I need help?

    WELCOME TO LMF!
    I would suggest reading these threads (people with the same problem) to give you an idea of what it might be.

    If nothing happens when you lift the knob, my guess is the switch is probably bad or you have a safety switch some where on the mower that isn't working.

    I have the right "NOT" to be tolerant of others because they are different, weird, or tick me off.

    Did you check any belts? the main drive belt for the deck might be off the pulleys.
