You need to check the shear pins in the auger. These are special bolts that hold the auger to the shaft. They are located on the auger on either side of the gear box sometimes about half way between the gearbox and the side of the frame.
If that is not the problem you probably have a bad gearboc. I would also check the belt and make sure it is not slipping.
I hope this helps.
