Real rookie here. Bought unit few years ago from Home Depot. Decided to fire it up today to get it ready for season. Can not move unit at all. Wheels will turn less than an inch in either direction before locking up.

I'm not very technical or handy but want to see if there are a few simple things I can try. It is an MTD Model AS6FEE729 8 horsepower 24 inch unit.

Thanks!

before things get too complicated, check a few things. if everything was fine last time you used it make sure everything is still moving the way it should. tip the machine up onto the auger housing and pull off the belly pan. then look at the insides, make sure when you move a lever or control... something moves, not just a spring stretching out. after everything is lubed and loosened up. see if you still have a prob. if last year it was fine and this year you have a prob. no doubt about it some thing is stuck.
