So I have been using my ASV RC50 for general snow removal. This past weekend it was down to about -15F and the RC started like a champ every time I needed it.
I did however experience a wierd problem. When I went to back the machine out of the garage, the tracks on one side wouldnt move. It was like they were frozen.
I tried wiggling the stick and 'motivating' it with the other track with no avail. I ran the bucket and whatnot to 'heat up' the fluid, but when i activate the seized track side, it 'budged' about 5 degrees in rotation, but nothing more.
Engine did stall, or bog down at all. Eventually, it simply started going.
Thoughts?

I typod, engine did NOT stall.
No experience with these but sounds like park brake on that side (if thats possible) would not release or ice on that side?
Did you get out and check that side for ice blockage?
Regards
Ken
