Deluxe 28 Only Right Wheel has Power – Is this Normal…?

I just picked up a 4 year old Ariens Deluxe 28 model #921022. It looks brand new and runs great. I feel sort of foolish for asking this question but when I start it and engage the wheel drive, only the right wheel (referenced as if you were standing operating the machine) has power and the left wheel is just free spinning. When I turn off the machine I can easily push and pull it around on both wheels but when operating the machine, shouldn’t both wheels have power?

Is the pin lock on the outside of the wheel or on the shaft inside the gear box area that's accessed by removing the belly pan? I'll take some photos tonight and post them.

Just a question does it have a lever under the left handle? If so you have a differential lock. Give it a squeeze and it may correct the problem. Not sure of the model so I can't be sure you have this or not. Good luck.

I do not have pin lock holes on the shaft outside of the wheel. I have metal clips that hold the wheels on. If I remove the clips, the right wheel slides right out easily. I did this and cleaned the spindle and shaft and greased it. I never could figure out how to remove the left wheel. I could remove the clip and couldn't get the wheel off. It would move back and forth a little bit but I couldn't get it to slide off. It sure felt like there was another clip holding it on, but I couldn't find anything that needed to be removed?

Yes, I do have the lever under the left handle so I do have the differential lock but it does not seem to work. Are there pins or anything I can check inside the gear box? The cable seems to be adjusted correctly, but I will take a better look this weekend when I can see better in daylight. I can take photos of anything if that would help diagnose my issue?? Thank you!

Those wheels are keyed (ask me how I know lol) the key may be missing when you took the wheel off, oh I just seen you have the wheel lock lever, if that is not working right you can manually lock it with the belly pan off but may have to leave it locked, I had that on my ST1027LE but could not repair it so purchased a auto turn kit for it from Ariens

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.

Zavie - GREAT VIDEO LINK!! Thank you. That's the exactly same set up as I have on my machine. I wish he also showed how to correctly adjust the spring that the cable from the handle lever attaches too. Does anybody have a good video link of this process?

I'm planning on pulling my belly pan off this weekend and taking a better look. I'm hoping that a good cleaning and some grease is all I'll need like in the video.

Dauntae - By manually, you mean using my fingers to snap or lock PART A and PART B together correct? And once they are locked together you can't unlocked them manually with your fingers?

As far as removing both the left and right wheels, do I just need to remove the outside clips and they should both just slide off the axle/shafts? Is there anything else I need to remove to get the wheels off? I'm not sure if mine has a key in the shaft or not??

Thanks for the help guys.
