why won't my craftsman lawn tractor pull itself up a grade and has very little reverse?

New belts,pulleys and idlers are ok. tractor just won't pull itself up a hill. The pulley above the rearend turns without turning the wheels even with the push lever in the back engaged? It's a 25hp 48 cut DLT with hydro transmission. Purchased in 2000. I can turn the wheels and hold the drive pulley above the rearend from turning??? Is this normal? The drive pulley above the electric clutch has some wear so i'm replacing it but don't think it's the problem. Any ideas?
