Question about Garden
More than likely the bearings on the mower deck that your lawnmower blades bolt to are seized or are close to it .Disconnect the negative battery cable from battery before you get anywhere near the underside where the blades do there business. Better yet, remove battery completely, and have it tested at AUTOZONE for free. While battery is out , check free spin of deck blades. Any resistance or grinding while blades are disengaged >debris , fence wire , rope tarp, etc.. or bearing failure. [DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS PROBLEM AND THE POSSIBILITY OF SERIOUS INJURY, I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND TAKING IT TO BE CHECKED AT INDY SHOP. ... ALTHOUGH COMMON SENSE WILL GO FAR IF YER MECHANICALLY INCLINED. .. YOU TUBES VIDS ARE A GOOD STARTING POINT. NOTE:BEARINGS CAN BE REPLACED,, WHEREAS A HAND OR A FOOT ...AINT AS EASY. Good luck

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.

sounds like either a saftey switch problem or a bad drive clutch on the pto. usuallly the mower shuts down,not the blades, they may have changed this though. my best guess would be a safety sensor try calling your local cub dealer and talking to the repair person he can shed light on the problem.

I have the same tractor. If you have the transmission in <reverse> this will happen every time. It's a safety feature. Be sure the tractor is in <neutral> or one of the 6 forward gears.

Sounds like the shear bolt is broken, Do you have and owners manual to show you the location of shear bolt? They are easily replaced.
