Sounds like the belt is slipping. Have you removed the belt cover and inspected the belt and the tensioner pulley ? If your model is like mine the tension can be adjusted just below the handles by looseneing the nut where the cable goes into the cable sheath and moving the cable cover further away from the handle. That takes up some slack and will make the tensioner pulley tighter on the belt. If the belt is shot tension isn't going to help.
Try "google" with "earthquake 5070 manual" first option should be a PDF copy of a model 5070 manual. Will have diagrams on how to adjust the cables.
turf mode is where only one wheel is powering the sportsman.
sounds like the left wheel is the one that would drive it.
i can not figure out if it is the rear left wheel but it may be. i would see if there is a problem with that.
Exploded view of rototiller available at New Holland website.. Area with decals has belt path diagram. http://partstore.agriculture.newholland.com/us/parts-search.html#epc::mr55011ar111419 Belt goes around motor pulley and tiller pulley and above idler pulley, which is in the middle. When putting belt on, it is easiest to put around motor pulley first and tiller pulley (the large one) last. Belt is 3/8" x 27" v-belt. Idler pulley is available too, only under Lawn Boy part number, which is found on parts list at New Holland site. Just had to perform repair. All parts found on ebay. Hope this helps!
