Firewood fun

With the golf cart not working the old yellow TC1840H steel yard cart has been getting a serious work out these past few weeks helping with firewood gathering.

It seems about twice as easy to pull if you catch the ground while it's still frozen.

Right before Christmas, I was driving it and it just stopped. It acted like the batteries died, but we've charged them and tested them and they're fine. When we push the accelartion pedal, it sounds like something's turning in the motor, but the wheels don't turn. Mark tried jumping the solenoid, but that didn't work. We've been slow to get to it because of the holidays, but we're hoping to tempt someone to come out and look at it in the next few days --- we really need it for wood hauling! Any ideas what might be wrong?
