TORO 826oxe traction to the right wheel is weak
Original Message   Mar 5, 2014 11:52 am
Hey guys, wondering if you can point me in the right direction on where to look.

I have been noticing my snowblower pulling to one side. When i tilt the snowblower up so the wheels are off the ground and the traction lever depressed, I can stop the right wheel from spinning when I bump my boot off it. With the left wheel, it doesn't stop when I do this. So it seems that while the right wheel is getting traction, it's just really weak and this is what is causing it to pull. Any ideas what to check?

Thanks

does this machine have a traction control system?  if not check to make sure you didn't loose the wheel pin lock from that wheel.

Not sure what traction control system is.

If the pin was gone wouldn't the wheel not spin at all?
Because it does spin, just seems like at half the power though.

Giocam,

From the little that I checked you have two clutch levers, one per side beneath the hand grips. I believe your problem is somewhere in the mechanism, ie. cable,spring or even some clutch failure.

Here is a link to diagrams on the snowblower you quote but, I'm not absolutley sure as you haven't  supplied the serial number.

In the operators manual in the same link  page 13 and 14,  discusses the necessary adjustments for traction control.
