Touble moving through snow deuxe 28

Well thanks to the great advice from my forum friends, I was able to get my 4 year old snowblower started and somewhat moving. It is having a hard time moving through about 10 inches of fluffy snow. Should be easy. At times it did move ok, but most of the time it is extremely hard to move . A couple of times it did do little back fires. Any advice. Thank you.

Are we talking not enough engine power or power to the wheels?

If it sat for awhile there are probably some grease points/gears that could need attention.

The backfires maybe do the auger fighting the motor.

Serviceable gearbox? Check the fluid level?

Just kind of spit balling here.

Upgraded grips (soon)

Eventually.....LED fog light.

My guess is with the backfires and the setting the carb needs cleaned.

thanks all. MinnTim..I'm not sure about the power. The right wheel did spin at times. I wanted to check wheel locking. (Again I'm a cave man so something I say may just be plain ignorant..please say so if it happens...no ego here) But any manual I was able to look at on-line must be for newer models showing a cotter pin to lock or unlock. My wheels have a more square shaped mteal clip on the wheels.

that square clip costs about $13.00 at the local areins dealer. i bought a spare just in case mine ever fell off and got lost! half the price as the part the other half was for shipping!

Is it moving better now? Was it just the clip? If so, awesome - we'll always take easy when it comes to fixing things!
