Ariens Snowblower Axle Wont Turn
 
Just got a new Ariens 920006 Compact 24 snowblower. It blows snow great, but there seesm to be some problem wiht the wheel drive. When the traction clutch is released, the axle can spin freely. But when the traction clutch is depressed, the axle does not spin. In fact when the traction clutch is depressed, the axle becomes locked.

This is a brand new machine. The set up instructions in the manual did not address any task related to the wheel drive. Is there some unlock that needs to be done.

I have both wheels locked to the axle. But the problem is the axle does not spin.

I am not sure that I understand. With the engine running, you engage the clutch, and the blower does not propell itself? With the engine off, you engage the clutch and the wheels lock up? Please elaborate on "spin".

BW, what was the problem? I just bought a 920014 same thing, just put it together this morning. I have tried everything except taking the unit apart!


Thank you
Mike
