Note: This is about a different mower, but it might be similar enough to yours. If not, please disregard. Thanks!
I had a similar issue with our mower, a 2006 Troy-Bilt Pony model 13AN77TG766 (17.5 HP, 42 inch deck): when I pushed the handle down to engage the blades, it took a good ten seconds or so to start the blades turning; even then, they didn't have enough power to cut the grass. And on any height setting lower than 5, they wouldn't turn at all.
The cause was on page 19 of the manual <URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf>: Figure 17 shows the "PTO" cable attaching to a hole on the edge of the deck idler bracket, but it was shipped from the factory attached to a hole in the middle of the deck idler bracket, about 3 cm (1 in.) closer to the front end of the machine. I reattached the cable to the original hole, and the belt is now good and tight; the blades engage as soon as I push the handle down.
Now, today, I'm having problems with the belt popping off the right-hand idler (hopefully just needs the deck stabiliser rod adjusting).
Always remember to remove the spark plug wire before you go near the blades; and watch for hot, sharp, and/or pinching surfaces.
