ariens snowblower traction
 
Is there a way to determine weather friction disc or belt is the culprit in a wheel drive problem? I have a 824 ariens snowblower. I adjusted the tension cable for the wheel drive, it worked ok in light stuff and first run. The problem just got worse. Is it best to replace both together?

Have you removed the bottom plate to determine what is slipping?

No, I wanted to get some insight before starting tearing into it. what I understand it sounds like the friction disk on my model can be a problem.
