My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.
First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)
This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

I've had the same problem (I think) - the starter will not activate. First time, I found the fuse that's attached to the battery "tray" had corroded. For that I put a good coating of silicone dielectric grease on the fuse contacts and holder. This keeps moisture out. With that it was good for a few months. Now it's gone bad again. This time the fuse is good, but the battery is dead, and so dead that it won't recharge. Apparently the cause of the discharge was/is grass and moisture finding its' way into the battery area, and providing a conductive path between the battery terminals. I was recharging it regularly, following the owners manuals' instructions, so it's definitely not a negligence problem caused by me.
So, obviously what we have is a design flaw in the mower that allows grass clippings to get into the battery area. Time for a recall, but for a quick fix for your current pioblem, you might just find the fuse is corroded, and a replacement + non-conductive grease may be all you need to git'er going.

For the easiest solution, try running some automotive type fuel system cleaner through the machine (added to the gasoline; not straight). Find some Chem Tool Berryman B-12 at the auto parts store and add 2-3 ounces in a gallon of fuel or 1-2 ounces in a half gallon. The solvents in the cleaner may aid in cleaning a dirty carburetor. You may want to drain the fuel and remove the carburetor bowl and clean it out as debris may be there, intermittently clogging up the main jet in the carburetor. Water will settle there too.
