Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
Most likely the mower belt is rubbing and causing this. But don't try to find it with the mower running! With the engine off, lower the deck and inspect the mower belt for worn or burnt spots. The problem isn't the belt, though. Look under the mower deck - is a branch or other object stuck in there? Get it out, and replace the belt if it's badly burnt.
If it's not a stuck object, than you probably have a frozen spindle (the bearings that hold the mower blades) or idler pulley. Remove the belt and spin each of these by hand to find the problem. The pulleys are not expensive, but the spindles are. I hope it's just a branch. Good luck! Please rate if helpful, thanks!

It sounds as though you are losing power (electrical power); see if charging the battery fully allows it to run longer or if charging the battery helps.
