    Jack it up nice and high and solid and tackle it from the bottom. Sound like you may have part of the strap still in the blower or blade clutch is engaged. Blowers are pretty tough.

    I had a new employee suck up a strap in a pile of leaves. The mower was almost new. The strap caused the fan blade to bend slightly until it dragged the housing. I took my fan off the mower, took the cover off and ground some metal off the offending blade. Sounds like you accomplished the same thing another way. Great that you got it fixed.
