Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

I mowed half way through, the mower sputtered like it was out of gas. It picked back up but when I engaged the blades the power bogged down, and would only pull at a crawl, what do I need


Stop the engine, disconnect the spark plug wire(s).
Try moving the blades by hand.
Without being engaged, the blades should have a little resistance because they are still connected to each other. But shouldn't be hard to turn.
This will start you in the direction of finding out what's wrong.
A belt that's not in place, a bearing for one of the blades going bad, ect.

Safety switch located


Micro switches will just stop the engine if the blades are engaged and the operator leaves the seat, or will stop the engine cranking if the blades are engaged, it will not stop the blades from engaging.

23 hp Kawasaki FH680v engine losses power when engaging pto!


We had issues in the UK with issues like this, they would blacken and soot up the plugs and start to run on on cylinder, there was an internally vented carb rather than the externally vented carb to cure this.

Motor chokes and misses under moderate load and loses power


Sounds to me as tho it might need a carburetor adjustment, providing there is an adjustment screw on the carb. Sounds like the engine is running a bit lean. Did this problem occur right after the carb cleaning, or was it there in advance? Is there a fuel filter that might be clogged?

Toro timecutter spits and sputters when blades are engaged


Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done
