Is the blade able to be turned by hand? Can you feel any friction that might be binding in the shaft? Just a guess.. may be bearings worn out in the shaft or a bad clutch.

Try pulling the gear head from the shaft. Does it turn freely? Could it be a broken clutch spring that doesn't pull the shoes back away from the drum. Bad/old gas, in need of a new fuel filter? Just some guesses here...
