New to the whole GT Tractor stuff but I just recently got 2 S14's and made one good one, only problem I'm curious about is the left wheel is the only one that spins is it supposed to be like that or is there something wrong with the rear?

Download the manual from our manuals section and check. I don't know if they were limited slip. You can download 3 free manuals per day. Post some pictures to identify the amount of slip. Good Luck, Rick

My usually working procedure is to assume the opposite wheel has a problem.  I can't remember the Ariens S14, if it has brakes on one side?  Check for something that's hanging up or rusted, or caked with mud, or something of that nature.

I was going to ask you about this last night and I forgot all about it. Is this when it is jacked up and freewheeling or is it when your losing traction?

It seams to be working fine now, seems it was a flook thing that was happening in wet grass.
