Question about Garden
Have you actually replaced the clutch? If not, give that shot. It sounds like the clutch is slipping and after so many adjustments it may be time to replace it. If the clutch is hydrualically activated, try replacing the "slave cylinder". If it's a manual clutch (cable) then try replacing the cable itself.
Also, check or have checked; the drive axles (if any) or the component that drives power to the wheels. The mower should have some sort of actuator as well that activated the blades. This may be drawing so much power from the engine that there's not enough to drive the mower itself, and is distributing all the power to the blades.
If it has an actuator, it may be weak and loosing it's viscosity. Some of these are calibrated by air pressure, others are driven or operated electronically.
Contact the dealer (manufacturer) for more details or a repair/service manual if available.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance with this matter.

You most likely need an inner clutch adjustment or a new clutch. They do go bad sometimes early. I would let them look at it under a warranty/RECALL umbrella. If you're 100% sure you would have to pay for it then that is different. It appears the clutch is shot and it is metal to metal causing it to **** and grind. There are only so many parts to look at and grinding is always the clutch because that's the only two surfaces that can grind - - the clutch plate meeting the clutch disk.
Best of luck with an other wise fine mower I am sure.

This is a transmission problem if you have had it worked on several times I dont know why exactly the mechanic would not suggest buying a new or refurbished one as maintenance once they are past there prime becomes very costly I would look into buying a refurbished if everything else is okay and if not maybe look at getting a new mower entirely as the cost of work is only going to go up at this point
hope this helps
