you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor

inside the motor/arbor section of the saw, there is a helical gear and worm drive on the motor. the front of the motor is supported by a bearing in the aluminum arbor section. sounds like most of the bearing balls are disintegrated and the worm disengages when a load is put on it but spins when there is no load. I would check and replace the front bearing.

Testimonial: "I haven't dismantled the saw yet but at least the problem has been narrowed down. Thanks for the hint."
There is no reset button on your motor. Sounds like you have a fried motor. You should be able to easily remove the motor for inspection. Remove the 4 screws holding the motor onto the frame. Be sure to remove your brushes before taking the motor off. After removing the motor, you should be able to take the armature out easily. If not, you know that the armature and field are swollen from heat and the entire motor assembly should be replaced. May not be cost effective at this point. If you can remove the armature check for damage to the field and armature. Look for burn marks and comm bar damage. There may be a short in the field or armature and for that you need a special tester. If you have any questions please post.

Testimonial: "Thsi is really helpful,as i was just about to send the saw off to be repaired. I might now buy a new one"
There should be a special washer between the bolt (that holds the blade on) and the blade. If the arbor has a flat side on it, then the washer should have a matching hole so that the washer cannot turn independently of the arbor. Or, some saws use a spring washer which is cupped and becomes flattened against the blade as the bolt is tightened. If you have the first type of washer, perhaps the bolt is just not tight enough. If you have the second type of washer, perhaps the washer is backwards. If you have neither type of washer, you need one.
