Ariens 11528LE

I have an Ariens 11528LE which starts right up every time but as soon as i hit any snow the impeller and auger stop. We did get some very heavy wet snow in November. The auger and impeller seem to spin fine until they hit any resistance at all. Any help is appreciated.

Remove the belt cover and check the tension on the forward belt when engaged, is it tight. The key in the lower pulley could be sheared, you will need to split the machine to repair it.
