My John Deere after 15 summers of mowing my 3 acre lawn is fucked

It happened yesterday as I was mowing one last time before winter.

The motor is ok but something below that made the blade belt break (3 blades and the belts were replaced this year for $500) and the upper belt that actually make the mower move was all shredded up but didn't break all the way so I was able to make it to the garage to park it bawlin

Cost me $5000 new.......and all the belts and maintenance over the years........and of course hundreds of $'s worth of gas (it has a full fuckin tank right now)

So between now and March I will have to buy another damn mower.

I wish it would be my last mower but then I would also hope to be mowing the place on my 100th birthday king

Gawd I hate busting into my Ben Franklin stash just so I can do more work and spend more money bluehoo bs Rolling Eyes cowboy

Sounds like a pulley froze up, could be a simple fix
