CUTTING OUT

Both of the replies are valid! when it quits let go of the throttle and see if it physiclly rotates back or is just setting there...the carb situation is the most likely culprit...seems that at the beginning of each season...you will see the exact situation. Lube the throttle cables, get teh carbs cleaned, BUT TOSS your fuel and add a fresh tank of 91 Octane fuel. STA-BIL or not, get fresh gas from a first rate gas station, not a cut-rate station. You may also want to change your plugs, and keep them for later use...Hair-line cracks and even carbon way up inside the plug can cause some real crazy problems just like this. Once you get these things done let us know what you found...

FUEL PROBLEM

Empty the gas into the mower, then slosh out the tank, or remove the petcock to see if your filter screen is clogged. If you filter screen is clogged you get the same problem...If you do have to remove or replace it I'd consider runnning a great, not just a good, gas filter on it and not a plastic one...
