Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
The engine runs fine when the mower deck blades are not engaged, once they are engaged the engine slows way down. There is no grass buildup on the deck, I have replaced the belt and the gas filter. I don't know what else could be the problem.
Sounds like the blade spindles are binding, many have Zerk fittings to grease them. with belt disengaged try turning the pulleys they should turn easily and have no wobble in them. if either is wrong replace spindle and best to change in sets. this is the most common issue.
