Inspect your drive belt periodically for any signs of wear of improper tension. A worn or loose drive belt can cause the blade to stop during the cut. The belt also provides a cushion for the blade to ride on. Ensure the belt is proud (sitting higher than) on the steel band wheel. If the blade is riding on the band wheel, it could cause it to slow during the cut or come off.
