John Deere snowblower 828d problem

I was using my John Deer Snowblower Model 828d when it stop moving forward or reverse. I found a bolt on the ground nearby. The problem I am having is I don't know where the bolt came from. I am sure that it worked it's way loose from the power train some where. Does anyone have and I idea where I should start looking for where it goes. I have looked all around but I see nothing missing. Can a simple bolt stop it from moving. everything else is working find.
Thanks

This is a good one, I would check from the drive handle all the way to where it enters at the bottom back panel. This has to be a quiz to test us.

If nothing is found with the drive rod or cable then you may have to put the unit in service position and remove the bottom panel, to verify if when pressing on the drive handle if you see everything is kosher. Good Luck

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

That bolt can be from anything from the shifter, the drive clutch or the drive train.

If the shifter is stuck in neutral there is your issue.
If the drive clutch isn't engaging the friction disc there is your issue.
If the clutch is working, but the power isn't being transferred to the wheels then the drive train is the issue.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

That could very be the one but did you put the bolt back on if yes I would suggest that you clean the bolt with gas and apply some Blue Loctite when you screw it back with the rod. You're lucky you found the bolt and was a simple fix.

I am new to the forum and wasn't sure where to post my question. I will not do this again. But that you for your suggestions on what the problem could be.
