Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

It would appear that the load is more than it can handle due to a restricted belt/drive, etc.

Check the movement of the blade for restrictions first.

Our goal here is to assist you in the repair of your vehicle by
supplying you with well educated information. We may not always
have the exact fix you wanted to hear, but our job is to get you on
the right track, which we always do. We can’t hear, see, smell or
touch your vehicle from where we’re at, so your understanding of
that is greatly appreciated. There are no magical or miraculous
answers, but we do our best to guide you in the right direction.
Thanks, Ron
