Question about Garden
How old is the belt? Belts on Lawnmowers don't tend to last too long. I'd bet a new belt is what you need as that is the most common thing, even if the belt looks good, they stretch and so will slip more on the pulleys with the blades and so will not turn fast enough for a fast cut. A new belt is relatively cheap and can be bought from the local lawnmower dealer.

There are a couple of possible causes for your problem.
first of all, check to be sure that the large nut holding each blade in place is tight. If it is not, use a piece of a 2x4 to hold the blade and a wrench to tighten each bolt. While you are under the deck examine the blades to be sure that they are fairly sharp and not in need of a good sharpening as dull blades can make you think the blades are not cutting.
The second cause could be that the belt is old and stretched. So what is happening is that the belt is slipping every time there is resistance. To remedy this install a new belt.
The third problem could be that the belt tensioner wheel and spring are worn. If that is the case replace them.
Finally, if your mower only goes slowly when the deck is not cutting you probably have a partially blocked carbeurator. You can try to clean out the blockage with a carbeurator cleaner that you add to the gas, or have the carbeurator rebuilt.
