    It seems if I just cant have any good luck lately. Today another one of my pieces of equipment broke. I just started on my first yard on the day and on my first pass, my blades stop spinning. So, I stop the mower to see if I popped a belt because that has been happening alot lately. But when I get underneath it I realized it was a bolt that fell off the clutch and the clutch was just barley hanging on. So I tried to bolt it back on and come to find out that the bolt is stripped. This is the first time I have ever had a clutch problem with this mower so it has had no work done to the clutch before so it should not be stripped. So are there any mechanics on here that may know what happen? The mower is at the shop right now but they have said they have never seen this happen before. Any help guys?

    It's not entirely unheard of, probably just needs a new bolt and gtg.
