These symptom point to the engine speed being set too low.
If adjusting the engine speed does not help, check to be sure your mower deck isn't too low. Also, the chute could be blocked.
Most probably the engine speed should be set higher.
I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

It sounds like your mower is equipped with a reverse safety switch. This switch will prevent you from mowing in reverse by killing the engine, like any safety switch. You just need to investigate it and decide if you will disengage the blades to back up or if you will disable the safety switch. You mentioned that there were wires cut. Do you know what they were? How many were cut? I suggest that you trace them out to see what they are, where they go. The previous owner may not have wanted to deal with the safeties for a number of reasons.
In regards to the reverse safety switch, many mowers do not have them. As in they do not come on all mowers, historically. I do not know if they are designed into all the newer ones or not. I work on older mowers and whether or not they are on a mower seams to depend on the manufacturer (on older mowers). My seven or eight year old Craftsman does not have one, while a twelve year old MTD may.
I hope this is helpful for you.

Testimonial: "thanks will try to check for a switch,,and abought all the wires were cut by a dog i got a wireing ***, and reconected and reran all new wires "
First thing to check would be a seat safety switch. There are probably a number of safety switches on your unit and those are easy to test with a multimeter. Using the ohms scale you should have almost no resistance in one position and no reading at all in the other.
