If all the above problems have been eliminated then I would say that the 2x material is pinching the blade enough to stop the blade and arbor. This is not all that uncommon with 2x material. As you cut the tension in the wood is released pinching the blade. Tighten the arbor nut and spread the saw kerf cut with wedges about every foot or less to prevent the pinching problem. You will likely need a second person to insert the wedges as you go. Be careful not to come close to the blade.
