It will be a little difficult to check the drive without running the machine or removing the bottom cover which the seller is not likely to permit.
As was mentioned the tires will never go flat but provide marginal traction. You could install chains but the machine will shake your fillings loose on a hard surface.
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!! I am not the only one that thinks using starting fluid is a bad idea. I have seen it blow holes in pistons. MAHALO for speaking up on that 1.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!
