Ditch witch 1230

Rebuilding my 1230, and need some help.
New honda engine, new belts so far.
When machine is running the chain is moving, there seems to be plenty of slack in the belt. Any thoughts?
With belt off to the chain I can spin pully freely with my hand is this normal.

Probably a tensioner is let out too far.

Or the belt is the wrong size


Walk behind trenchers will put a new meaning to back ache!!
