When the brake releases and it stalls right out, usually a sign that the coil is getting the signal to stop the engine. You have a faulty ground or faulty coil wire. Check safety switches as well... if there's one under the seat, unplug it...

Hi, It would be more helpful to know make and model of lawn tractor. But lets try take some steps. I assume the tractor is in neutral when started and in gear when release brake pedal? So does it stall when you release brake pedal when in neutral? If not then its not. We can start checking why. Does it stall from working the engine or just shuts off? If it just shuts off then it is a switch. If it truly stalls then a park brake is on or tranny is jammed. Jack drive tries off the ground. See if you can turn tires in neutral. If you can't look for a park brake lever. And while jacked up check all your belts. To see if any are pinched. That is another problem sometimes. The drive belt gets pinched.
Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.
