Ariens Right wheel?

My ariens 824, the right wheel axle has 2 holes, an inner and outer. Why are there 2 and which one should I use?

Always snow blow with the pin in the inner wheel. When moved to the outer hole That wheel will not be driven by the axle. It will "free wheel" and it makes turning easy. Great for moving machine around. If you get 4-5 inches of very fluffy snow you will have no problem snow blowing with the pin in the outer hole but you may feel like it is pulling to one side.

You have 2 holes in the axle & 1 in the rim hub, correct?? The pin goes thru the outer hole in the axle to allow the rim to turn free on the axle when you move the blower around the garage in circles. To blow serious snow, move the pin to the inner hole on the axle & thru the wheel hub. This locks both wheels to the axle for "POSI" action. Do Not however, use the outer axle hole to lock the wheel hub to the axle, as this messes up the space in the bushings on the axle!! Clear as mud ??? Let us know if you need more info ,Roger
