Try starting this without the blades engaged. Bottoming out will affect the deck but not the motor. In fact, remove the drive belt for the mower altogether and see if the engine runs fine. If this is the case then you have to look at where the damage is on the deck.

SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

This is most likely the flywheel on the motor that has slipped out of timing. You need to replace the woodruff key and set the flywwheel back in line with the slots for the key.

check fuel pump and check gas tank and filter for dirt, check oil level if all ok check kill switches also it maybe the shaft key may have broke it is just a long square piece of metal that is hammered in to a grove in the shaft and is meant to brake off so the shaft wont break if something hard is hit. The mower wont start till this is replaced.

Lots of smoke when I engaged stuck blades - now runs roughly


Most likely what you did was burn one or more spots on the belt. When the blades and belt stop turning, like in tall grass, the engine doesn't stop and will burn flat spots on the belt at the engine pulley. Every time the flat spot hits a pulley, it will jump and can set up a bad vibration. Run your hand around the sides of the belt or take it off and you will feel or see the thin spot(s) on it. Replace belt.
