Both tracks or just one side?

Re: 277b park brake stuck

So no one wants to even speculate?  My understanding is that the park brake is inside the rear motor housing that powers the tracks.  Maybe its not the brake at all but the whole motor that is siezed up in some way.  I nope not.

277b park brake stuck

Is it possible that the park brake could mechanically stick due to debris (clay and gravel mixed)? (or fail to disengage otherwise?) I have no flashing warnings.  Machine starts, park brake switch turns off when pushed and bucket hydraulics are available.  Drive forward and reverse area available but the machine struggles mightily to move forward or back, with an accompanying loud rubber on rubber sounding screetch.

 

I had been up to my eyeballs in mud and gravel and have cleared out the Idler and drive wheels as best as possible but with no releif.   -  This is my father-in-law's machine and I would love to get it fixed so I don't have to give his daughter back, (and loose use of the machine as well!)  thanks, tim
