Exmark Laser Z--Belts or Blades Screeching When Shutting off Blades?

My Laser Z is screeching when I shut the blades off. Anyone else have this problem? They turn on fine, runs ok, but when I shut the blades down, it really screeches. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Replace the belt. Belt has stretched beyond its limits.

How old is this LaZer?

Could the clutch be shot.

When they go, a lot of times it's the brake part that goes.
