Snowblower loosing throwing power when in drive

I have a craftsman 10.5 horse snowblower. When it's not moving it's throwing snow sufficiently. When I engage the forward drive I loose power on the auger/impeller where it's only throwing snow <25% when compared to standing still. Any ideas?

check the belts for tightness, overall condition, etc.
