My Scag stops on inclines in 3rd 4th and 5th gears?(belt drive)

My older scag 61" comes to a complete stop when going up a hill or even a small incline. In 1st gear it works o.k.. The belt seems to be pretty tight. Internal trans. problem? Any help will be appreciated. THANX.

Belt may seem tight, but it still may be slipping. When you have it in 1st gear can you hold the mower back?

sometimes the belt wears and runs to the bottom of the pulley then it only pulls on the small inside part of the belt. this can fool you. the belt should pull on both sides of the belt not the bottom. change the belt
