Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I start the mower and it will run for 5 minutesif that. After that it starts to sputter as if there is no gas in the mower, then it finally dies out and can't be re-started for 10-15 minutes later? What is the deal?
I had a very similiar issue, try this, when the mower starts to die, unscrew the gas cap, if it starts running again, it is creating a vacuum in your fuel tank, you can get a new gas cap, or drill a small hole in it to allow a bit of air inside.

Find the fuel air mixture screw and while the mower is running turn so mower almost stops then turn them back till the moter is running smoother.Give it some throtle to see & hear how it is running

Bad gas? Water? Air filter plugged causing it to choke and sputter? Wouldnt kill it though. Sounds like water trying to be spent in bowl? ,or I'd say like almost always, clean carb , main jet gets plugged, bowl can't fill fast enough till it dies, then while sitting bowl fills back up, then runs till sputters then die.
