"Normal" noise when pushing Ariens 926LE with wheels lock

Hi all,

The drive system on my "new to me" 926LE appears to function fine - all forward and reverse gears work. I can toggle the wheel locks on and off without any problem. I'm just curious if the machine sounds normal when pushing it with the wheel locks engaged. I recorded a video to capture the sound. Both left and right wheel were locked when I made this video.

Thanks for you input.

I do not recall mine making that much noise.

But then again it has been a year since I had it, and have drank away a few brain cell's since then.

I never have owned an Ariens, but that does not sound outside the norm.

What I hear is the axle spinning the friction wheel. Which would explain the sound being present when the axles are engaged.

Just my two cents.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I agree, normal sound.

Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Great! Thanks everyone for the feedback.

Considering the snow blower weighs close to 265 lbs, I hope to not be pushing it with the motor off anyways :-)
