No drive when forward or reverse peddles engaged. Also cannot free wheel mower when freewheel lever engaged.
The sequence of events leading up to this problem are: While mowing the lawn I noticed that there was only one blade cutting. I reversed and then went forward and confirmed that only the right hand blade was cutting. I stopped the machine and had a look at the deck and noticed that one of the drive belts was off the pulley. I then decided to drive back to the shed and check what was wrong. I started the machine but there was no drive forward or reverse. I then removed the cutting deck to get a better look underneath and see if there was anything jammed or out of place or the belt was broken. All looked OK. Tried to push it back to the shed but found that it would not freewheel at all.
Found also that the middle housing mandrel was broken at all four positions. I guess that this would have caused the deck belt to come off the pulley.
Any suggestions would be most welcome. Rgds
