Deere Sabre

Broken lawn mower belt on a riding mower?

I have a John Deere Sabre riding lawn mower that I've had for a few years. (Purchased used) Yesterday while mowing the lawn I hit a small hidden stump and the mower jumped a little but the engine did not stop and still runs perfectly well. However, the blades no longer move and upon closer inspection, the belt had snapped when I hit the stump.

First of all, since the belt snapped, and the motor runs fine, what do you think the overall damage might end up being? I would think that since the belt snapped it may have prevented severe damage. I have not yet tipped over the mower to see if the blades are bent are not.

And second of all, if anyone has a link or simple instructions as to replacing the belt, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you so much for your help!

Type in your model number and there is more than likely a free manual to show you the belt routing diagram or ask the shop where you buy your belt.
