How hard does it shake? and does it mow?
most lawn tractor will shake a quick almost violent shake at first then it should vibrate quite a bit more while you are mowing this is just caused by the power being pulled from the motor to power not only the drive but the mowing deck. its normal.
if its worse than what i described you may have a bigger problem, if there is excessive clanking from the deck your blade may be loose/installed upside down.

You could have a bad spot in your deck belt or look for cracks in your frame where the motor is bolted down .

Safety switch at seat or reverse. Mower will cut of when blades are engaged if you get off the seat or put into reverse. Check these switches for stuck on, damaged, disconnected, or just plain broke. Good luck.
