The rear wheel is operating on a differential that is jambed up a tad. Make sure you don't have the brakes on (duh!), lift the rear end up and try to turn one of the wheels. but be sure to leave one of the drive wheels on the ground. If no locking lever is being engaged, you have an obstruction in the differential housing (it could be a pin, bolt or something sneaky you kicked up when you ran it). The gaskets could be saved if you take the time to carefully take the housing apart. Grab yourself a decent trouble light and get to the bottom of this so yer ol' Lady can get off your case about neglecting your chores (sorry, bad day for one of us). Pretty simple and straight forward, use the Force, clear the obstruction and button it back together, enjoy. Hope I could give you some worthwhile "atta-boys" and also hope you can feel confident about this simple job. You can do this!

Wheels are locked when trying to push it forward with engine shut off.

There should be a release to disengage the drive system so you can push it when not running. On my Cub Cadet it is on the back above the hitch. It is a simple lever that I pull out and push up to disengage. Has to be something similar on the toro.

My ariens 20hp 46" wont go forward or reverse

Look for a small disengage lever or sliding control. This is to disengage the drive so machine can be pushed without having to start the engine. It will usually be at the rear and low down, maybe covered by catcher if rear mounted.

Transmission by pass will not reengage

If you are pulling a lever(s) to do this, the pin the connects the lever to the hydro pump could have come lose. Some are fastened together with a removable pin. Check there first.

How do I release the lock on my Craftsman belt sander to lighten the belt. It's an old Model # 315.1172

I checked for that model number and they listed that number, but with an extra 0 at the right end. I couldn't find a belt release lever illustrated anywhere like that on my old Craftsman belt sander. On mine, you just flipped the lever either forward or back to release and tighten the belt. (still works great) There is a spring that pushes the front roller assembly forward when the lever is operated.

Stuck in four wheel in front tire only.

If Jeep is equip with push button 4x4 try this.
If you are stuck in four wheel drive disengage four wheel try backing it up 10ft to re aline transfercase gears.( Also linkage under truck maybe stuck.)

If Jeep is equip with lever on floor.
This one is a common problem lever on floor becomes stuck and won't let you disengage it. Have to Spray linkage with WD-40 or some kind of penetrating spray under truck where the linkage comes out of the floorand goes to the transfercase.

(Floor lever, Its tuff to get it to release I know I went through the same problem on my truck I had push it into 2wheel by using my leg.)
