John Deere 830 (1974) won't move

Carri Newby I have a JD 830 that will not move when it is put in gear. If I engage the locking differential it will then move. Can anyone tell me what will fix this problem?

ponymare If you step on say the right brake petal, and nothing happens, but pushing on the left one makes it go, then there is something wrong with the right axel.
Carri Newby I just went out and tried pushing the brake on each side with tractor in gear. Tractor will not move. The only way it will move is pressing down the "heel pedal" for what I call "bog control" probably the differential lock.
ponymare Sounds like you're going to have to do some investigation in the rear end.
Rick Ponymare is correct; sounds like the spider gears have give up.
