Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Why does a craftsman tracor with a kohler 15.5 hp engine bogg down when engaging blades


It will initially bog down when engaging, but should pick back up shortly after. If it is staying bogged down, turn mower off and check inside (under) the deck to make sure its not clogged up with grass clippings or dirt. if it is, clean it with either a hose or a scraper. Also make sure the deck is raised when you engage (dont engage with deck lowered on long grass).

Kohler 7000 series engine bogging down


bogging at idle or in deep grass or a lot of leaves? when was it tuned up last? Plugs, wires, fuel and air filter, fresh gas.
check the 3 basics, air fuel and spark. make sure the deck has been cleaned and lubricated.

ECHO SRM 2100 GRASS TRIMMER HAS NO POWER


For all others with String trimmers, blowers and other 2 stroke style engines...
If no power on high, tends to bog, won't run once choke off, check these:
  • Fuel Filter - It's IN the Gas tank; Just replace it
  • Spark Arrestor at Muffler, it's a screen that tends to clog up and causes very restricted exhaust flow
  • Spark Plug - again just replace it
  • Carburetor, clean or install rebuild kit
  • And adjust sorta hidden High/Low carburetor adjustment screws
Take a look here...

Intek 6.5 HP in a Craftsman 21'' mulcher/bagger --loss of power--


No - 6.5HP is enough to cut 3" at a fast walking pace. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

Scotts mower kohler command 25 motor bogs when mowing


Hi..my name is Keith..and it sounds like you have a binding somewhere on your mowing deck..i would check all the spindles .. pulleys and blades..and check the deck belt..it could have jumped a belt guard and it running on the outside of it..but just remember it has pulley brakes to slow the pulleys down when you shut it off..so..engage the deck without the engine running and check for the binding..i hope this has helped..if not..please write me back
