Husqvarna ST 330P not steering?????

Hey all!!!
this is my first post here. i found this site when reading about snowblower mods!!! you can mod them??? heck yes!!!
i come from air-gun mod pages so thanks for having me.
i'm from Nova Scotia Canada.

so- that being said - i received today a brad new Husqvarna ST 330P.

when running at different rpm and a different drive speeds it will not turn with any authority. i can operate it with one arm , press the trigger to turn it, and hold it while moving forward from turning without any great effort.
backwards and forwards work fine.
no real slack in the steering cables.

help!!!!! i called the 800 number they said contact my dealer. i thought i would talk to you all here first. and they don't open until tomorrow after i am at work.

thanks guy!!! looks like a great forum. cant wait to juice up my blower!!!

Without any power to the engine.....if you hold both triggers down, does the unit move easily - as if you put it in neutral ?

yes, without power to the engine, when the triggers are depressed, the blower will move as if in neutral.

and

without power to the engine, when the triggers ore NOT depressed, the blower will NOT move, as if in gear.

i tried the steering tests at wide open throttle, with speed shift at walking speed, i also tried it with lower RPM and the speed shift at higher speed.

i also have another question- is says " DO NOT move speed control level when traction drive control lever is engaged. Damage to the snow thrower can result"

is this true? i can see if you are going forward and then slam it into reverse, but say mildly adjusting the forward speed while moving sure id a nice option. but i don't want to wreck my blower. any insight on this too????

thanks for the help "snow" far!!! ha!
