Welcome to the site!

Is this something that just all of a sudden happened, or gradually got worse?

It sounds like there could be an obstruction somewhere. Have you looked on both sides of the mowing deck & the tractor itself? Perhaps an adjustment somewhere putting too much tension on one of the belts?
