Drive Disk

If the snowblower wheels don't turn the drive disk might be wet, greasy, or worn out. The drive disk is connected to the drive pulley which is powered by the drive belt. The disk serves as a sort of clutch which helps to protect the gear case from being overpowered by the engine. Over time the drive disk can wear out and then the wheels don't turn. First try cleaning the disk with brake cleaner or something similar. If that doesn't fix the problem, replace the disk.
