Mine did the same thing....two things to check: 1) air cleaner, make sure that it is clean 2). gas filter in the gas tank. Take a short piece of wire and fish the black line out. On the end is a small fuel filter. After I flushed mine fuel filter out it ran fine.

You likely have a clutch problem, never saw one that a simple adjustment would fix. I'd take off the tiller (there are two bolts that hold the tiller portion to the transmission, and check to make sure the clutch is sliding in and out. My hunch is either the lever is loose on the shaft or the allen-head little bolt that they use to shift the clutch has come out. Be sure to grease the clutch while you're in there.
This should be covered in your owners manual. Shame on them if they didn't mention this.

It sounds like the shift shaft or something in the gearbox the shift shaft engages. I know you didn't want to hear this but it is not uncommon. Most operators don't use the clutch bail when starting, stopping, and shifting as they should.
I hate to say it but this may require a trip to your service center for repair.

The clutch is non adjustable if the clutch fails you will have drive all the time or it slips. if the tines spin at the same speed with the engine at low and high speed the clutch might be slipping, the common cause for this is the gear box is partly siezed due to no grease being pumped into it, most ppl dont even know about this untill its too late. you have to remove the LH side tines to get to the screw.
