Craftsman lawntractor starts but shuts off when mower blades engaged

Any help with this problem. Mower was working fine till I went under a tree and got caught in a branch and mower shut off. I noticed that the key in the ignition was slightly bent but still works. Could it be the ignition switch?
Mower starts and drives fine without mower blades engaged.

Craftsman made an awful lot of different mowers... hard to know where to look without knowing what you have. Electric PTO or manual? The model number is under the seat, post it please.
