Husqvarna yth24v48ls leaving unmowed center strip

Hi - can you give me some things to check? husqvarna made funny noise when mowing and now leaving center strip not mowed at all. I'm woman who has had no problems with this lawn tractor for several years. I have handyman coming over to look at it in few days - what should we be looking for?
thanks in advance

How wide is the strip of grass that it is missing? If it's a very thin strip then you probably hit something with the outer edge of the one blade causing it to round off. If that's the case a new set of blades will take care of the problem.

Sounds like you actually broke one end of the blade off for it to leave a strip that wide. Won't know for sure until your handy man gets a good look underneath.

ha! well, I didn't see it fall off when I was mowing. Sounds like it will be obvious when he looks underneath. Thanks.

Is the center pulley stripped out, as to where it is not spinning the center blade?
