Yep, I've had this problem before...
what you are going to have to do is disconnect that stupid safety on your seat. That thing that turns the tractor off when you get up off the seat. So disconnect that thing and then turn the mower on. Rev it up real high, that way you know if there is a problem with your motor. After you have it reved up and nice and warm, engage the blades so as if you were going to cut the grass. Get off the mower while the blades are turning. Bend over and look into the grass blowout hole.
Don't forget the safety glasses, we don't need to have someone get an eye put out.
So after you go in the garage and put on your safety glasses, get down on your knees and look under the mower deck. Are the blades turning ????
You are thinking ,"what does this have to do with the brakes ?"
well, if you ask that, you obviously know nothing about tractors.
So are the blades turning ??
but do you know if they are turning if they are under a load ??
Now you are going to have to stick your left arm in there to see. Go ahead, stick it right up in there.......are they still turning ?
If they are, then your mower is fine.
