Pushing machine around by hand

I’m going through and checking and tightening my machine up. I have noticed with power to the motors, I can still move the machine by hand. It takes a bit of force but still do able. I also noticed while trying to cut it would skip some steps in the X axis. Everything is tight and set screws are on the flats. What am I looking at and should I be able to move the machine when powered? Thanks Ray

Depends on how hard you push. Sounds like your belts are a little loose to me, but hard to tell.
