Timemaster blade issue

To start off I only mow 8 lawns a week on the side from my normal job so I invested in a timemaster 30 last spring. Everything has been fine except for this one issue. I loaded up my mower on my trailer after finishing a lawn and unloaded it at another, I started it up and engaged the blades and all of a sudden the blades hit each other. I stopped and took off the front cover and realized I blew the belt that engages the blades. Easy enough swap out the belts and now the blades only this time the left blade looking from the front of the mower wiggles when fully tight while the other side doesn't move at all. My guess is the spindle or the blade washer any suggestions? Thanks

There was a recall on some Timemasters because of a part related to a spindle, I believe. You might check with your dealer and see if the repair is covered. The part that failed would cause the blades to hit each other.

Hopefully, others will chime in with more/better information.

I believe my mower is post recall as its a 2014 model. The recall I believe affected the 2012 and 2013 models. I may be wrong though.
