Blades won't turn to cut grass

I just purchases a new mower (Ariens 1334 Zoom). I can get it to run but the blades are not turning. What could the problem be?

On the chute where the grass comes out there is a black piece of metal under the edge of the deck held on by the 2 big thumb screws is probably bent. You will need to try to move the blade on the side near the chute by hand (Make sure the mower is not running when you do this) if the blade touches the black piece of metal it will kill the mower if you engage the blades and try moving forward. Anyway you need to take the black metal piece off and bend the corner out of the way (I used a crescent and clamped it to the hitch on my pickup). I am guessing i went over something like a street curb with the deck when it was to low and that bent it. Now when ever I move the mower from someones yard or drive it across the street I always raise the deck up all the way. I hope this helps

How do i change the blades on a 42in zoom z turn


raise the front of the mower to gain access to the underside where the blades are, using the right size wrench undo the bolt or bolts that hold the blades on and remove them from the mower, replace the blades and tighten the bolts to the required torque, lower the mower to the ground and take it for a test run.

Only one blade turns automatically on Ariens snow blower.


There is a bolt that goes through the center of the shaft that shears off if you hit something. You will need to line up the holes of the internal shaft with the auger tube and install a new bolt.

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
