Should be able to turn sharp circle on a hard surface and it will bind if its engaged. The outside tire should tear up the ground when turning on soft ground also if locked.

Can you safely lift the rear end and block the front tires?

If so lift the rear of the machine with the engine off, engage differential lock lever rotate the rear wheels forward. Both rear wheels should rotate at the same time.
