I would agree with the gas cap being the problem. There should be a insert inside the cap which helps with the tap pressure. If this is lost then the engine will run for a few min. and shut off.
There is one other thing and that is the float in the carb bowl. It may be allowing in just enough gas to fill the bowl and then it is sticking. This would account for just enough fuel to run for a brief period and then shut down.

Check your gas cap. There must be a vent for the gas to flow joedog

Mow for 30-60 min.mower shuts down. Sometimes you can mow all day.start goin up hills mower will shut down,about the second or 3rd trip.what's the problem?


Don't know what kind if engine you have but many have low oil shut down float switches inside the engine..when operating on hills or side if hills too long the oil will flow to the low side and the low oil switch will pick it up as low oil and shut it down..look for a small wire attached to the crankcase it most likely is that low oil switch..the next time this happens try disconnecting it and tape the end if the wire..try starting and run on the hill..it should not shut Down..just remember it is a safety switch to protect the engine from damage from low oil operation.try running the hills where the oil runs to the wire side of the engine..won't trick the low oil alert...Good luck..

I have a 18.5 Poulan Pro riding lawnmower that runs fine untill I activate the blades. It then dies after mowing for a few minutes. I disengage the blades and it runs fine. Any solutions?


does it loose power then die or just shut off?does it run rough then die?try and run it with the gas cap loose th event could be plugged and the extra fuel needed to mow the vent might not be keeping up or a plugged fuel filter

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

I had the same problem on my craftsman 18.5 hp, the problem was in the choke, the spring was broken, and the choke was not free, replaced the spring and it is fine now. Check it out. Good luck.
