pin#kv0260a261709 if you shut off brake switch right side will not move
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
I think the right side brake is locked and does not release.

what would cause that and how could I test to confirm and what would be the cure
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
Do you here or feel any movement in the chain case? If the drive motor is trying to turn the chains, he problem is in the chain case. If no movement, then the drove motor brake is locked. Follow the linkage from the brake actuator and see if it can be loosened. It is a mechanical brake and if it has rusted from lack of use, it will cause it.

It seems to be a slight nudge in the right side wheels before bogging down if you continue it will bog out and stall
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 years ago
Raise the locked side and manually try to move the wheels. They should have some movement. If they do, problem is going to be in the drive motor and brake.
