Hi guys,

Anybody in here worked on an Ariens RM830's drive system?
I'm converting mine to an romping/utility tractor, and I have no propulsion.

The engine on mine is 8hp B&S and runs great. I've taken off the mowing deck,
and I'm getting ready to have a look at the drive system to try and fix it.

I've never worked on such before, so I'm trying to gather as much information as possible.

Thank you for any input you might have!

-Geir

Is it a hydro belt, hydro shaft or geared?

if its geared, most likely the key broke, if its hydro belt, it could be either the key broke, or the thing is burned up, or its been disengaged, they have a little lever/rod on the back that disengages the motors, could be disengaged and the lever unhooked, if its shaft drive and it aint mving but the shaft it hooked up, it could be disengaged or burned up

Thanks for your input so far guys.
It's a friction-based drive system, and I'm missing the friction wheel.

I haven't got any photos yet, but I do have video:

Here, I found your friction wheel and even a parts breakdown of that part of the mower:

Can even buy from there, a new one. Good luck!

Thanks man!
Used that to get the part number and even found a dealer near me that had it in stock!
It's almost twice the cost of having it shipped fra the US, but now I can hopefully get it running tonight cheers

Hoping this will be a great evening!!

Now I can make a project thread, just as soon as I've decided on a path-to-go Smile

Hey and sorry for the thread hijack.

I've got a similar tractor(Ariens rm828)
It will start, but only by recoil. I've been checking the wires and trying to troubleshoot and there is no wire going from the solenoid to starter, and I can't even find the starter.
Is it hidden by the engine block? Anyone got any pics?
