Question about Garden
Wow, I hope nobody was hurt.
To extract the remainder of the bolt, you need to first hit the hardware store. If you have a piece that broke off, bring it. ( or the mower) You need a replacement bolt anyway.
Ask about 'Easy-Outs' and the what size drill bit corresponds to the one you need.
What they are is similar to a punch with course left handed threads.
The idea is you drill a hole in the bolt at a specific size for a specific easy-out. Pound in the easy-out so it can get a bite on the bolt and start unscrewing.
The left hand thread keeps a hold on the bolt while the bolt is unscrewing. Yes, it's a marvelous world. But not a perfect one.
Best get some penetrating oil too. And pull the spark plug before doing anything.

Tips for a great answer:
I have an old model Lawn Keeper gas edger with a 2HP Briggs and Stratton engine. It uses a 30" fan belt to drive the cutting blade and both pulleys have an alllen head set screw holding the pulleys to the shafts. The pulleys are cast aluminum and the set screw and shafts are steel so I find need penetrating oil and heat to loosen the set screw in order to push the drive pulley further on the shaft to make room to replace the drive belt.
