Customer Question

I have an MTD Lawnflite lawnmower - about two years - Model JLX 60 RA 13C 1054-690 CD141T 40011. It starts OK but when I try to engage the grass cutter I hear a grating/grinding sound. Any solutions?

From what you have stated it sounds like a pulley or gear issue, probably a bearing has failed on the drive system for the blades.
