Have you it something, the crankshaft on the bottom of the engine may be bent. Or the blade and blade adapter may need replacing because they are out of balance.

My poulan pro 550 series is vibrating a lot when I started. And the front wheel drive is not working anymore.

you need to unplug the spark plug then turn the mower on its side sounds like you hit a rock and bent something and if you bent the crank the belt might have fallen off

The mower vibrates a lot

Either the blade is badly out of balance/bent or it has hit something hard enough to bend the crankshaft which I have seen happen quite a few times. It could also have sheared the flywheel key causing the engine to be out of time but usually when that happens they won't even start and run.

I've recently inherited a power devil 3hp lawn mower i am a mechanic by trade so i uderstand engines but after using the mower a few weeks ago there was alot of vibration when running now i've come...

Vibration is normally from a poorly balanced blade, a loose blade, or the crankshaft is bent due to striking an emovable object on the lawn, check all these points, if it has been like this for a while it may well have sheared the flywheel key now, if it snatches on the starter rope it is the key or a loose blade.
