Gravely 1740 ZT need help

I have a Gravely 1740 ZT.. While mowing the "driveline" quit. Will not move. The controls are sluggish. The mower has 450 hrs on it. Is there a chance the drive pump went? And if so, is it time to throw it in the ditch?

    I would check the belt first.

    Thanks. I checked belt. It's not severed but very loose. Loose enough to take right off. Other than being severed, I'm not sure what I'm looking for.

    If belt is on all pulleys then make sure there are no broken/missing springs. If all is good then I would replace belt.
