mower starts but will not engage in forward or reverse

My mower will not go forward or in reverse when moving the levers forward or backward. No symptons could be detected prior to the issue. I was mowing and starting to go in reverse and it would not go. At that time it would not go forward either.

Is this a good question?

I would replace the drive belt. Instructions will be in your manual. I attached an image of the instructions and the belt routing. The manual is available online at http://www.hammerwall.com/Download_Manua... little bit of an odd site, but it works :-)

I have a bad boy magnum and I only had it 5days and only 4 running hours on it. My Husband was mowing and went to turn then the mower stopped on him, he started it back up and it came on but he couldn't not go forwards or backwards and it makes this whining noise and doesn't go anywhere. He also noticed that it will only start in the off position on the breaks and won't start in the breaking position.. what happened and how do I fix it?
