2009 Exmark Metro Issue

I have a 2009 Exmark Metro 48 inch belt drive. When mowing up a hill, mowing longer grass or turning, the right wheel has less power than the left. I have changed and tightened the transmission belt, but that did not help. Have any of you experienced something similar or does anyone have any suggestions before I take it to the dealer?

Thanks.

Sounds like the right belt is slipping.

Does that mean I need to replace the belt or is there a way to tighten it? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but this is my first year in the mowing business and I am still figuring things out. Thanks!

I think you have to replace it, I don't think there is an adjustment
