Sounds like you have a valve stuck in the open position or a bent / burnt valve

Remove the drive wheels and check the gears inside, they could be worn and need renewing.

SOURCE: swisher 44" mower starts and runs but engine bogs

The engine in this machine seems to be powerful. If you can remove the belt from the pulley that drives the blade. Try turning the pulley buy hand. If it turns tight or not at all this is your problem. The unit that is the pulley to blade assembly is seized or ready to seize. Sometimes they are designed to be taken apart and repaired, and sometimes they are not. Did you check for a grease fitting within the pulley to blade unit?
I would like to hear how this works out for you. Best of luck.

SOURCE: I have a 60" Lesco

If it were me I would check the PTO switch with it running and use a dvm or test light to see if switch is working or defective , you could just have a bad wire connector at the switch or at PTO clutch ....look for discoloration or spread terminals, good luck

New engine Kawasaki 25 hp mower engine has fuel starter engages won't start. I pour gas in carb it starts and run for few seconds what up.


Carb is not feeding gas to motor. Rebuild or replacement is mandated.

If there is a switch on the gas line to the carb it has to be turned on.

Engine dies when Blade is engaged


It sounds like the seat safety switch is the problem. Tilt up the seat and make sure the plug to the seat switch isn't loose or off completely, and that the switch is firmly mounted. If everything seems ok, remove the switch and test it with a multimeter. The circuit between the switch terminals should close when you press in the button. If not, replace it. Good luck!

22 horse kawasaki riding lawn mower will not run at full throttle unless the choke is engaged


That is not a good situation. Too rich of a fuel adjustment can wash the bores out on that engine and prematurely wear it out! You will likely need to have the carburetor linkage and plate adjusted so that full throttle operates without engaging the choke. (If this is a single lever that you slide from slow, idle speed to fast, then on to choke)
