mowing on saturday when moow just stopped thought i had something in blades but when i checked all was clear. went to start again and could hear starter motor engage but wouldn't start. checked to see if i could turn the pulley on vee belt drive and would not budge. ithink it must have siezed the motor oil was ok always check fluids before mowing but would appreciate any other checks before starting to pull it down. cheers steveWelcome!!!
