This is usually indicative of strain on the motor, moreso than a lack of fuel. You may want to check and see if the blades are obstructed or the discharge chute may be blocked. Wet grass is a common culprit in this and can really labor the blades, as well as cake the deck making it difficult for the blades to not only turn and cut, but to discharge the clippings as well. As long as you have the 3 primary elements of combustion (air, fuel, fire), this is most likely going to be the cause of your problem.

Have a Zero Turn mower (50 inch deck), engine will only run with choke full on and bogs down or stalls when demand put on engine ie. mowing in high grass. Changed filters (fuel and air) with no change in...

You have a lean fuel condition. This means your carburetor is clogged. By turning choke on you are changing the air/fuel ratio in the carb. You will need to bring this in to a good repair shop to have the carb cleaned.

Zero turn mower is sputtering and dies

Check everything is clean. Check the air filter is clean, check that the engine cooling fan, cutting blades and cutting deck are free of grass. Check all the drive belt pulleys to ensure accumulated grass is not jamming anything. Check the fuel filler cap is clean and the breather hole works.

I hit a metal pipe with my cub cadet zero turn lawn mower today. Now it smokes under the deck when I engage the blades and it is not cutting the grass. Have I ruined my mower?

You'll need to look under the deck w/ the mower not running and see why the blades aren't turning. Most likely something is bent (maybe blade) and hitting something. The smoke is probably from the belt slipping and getting hot.

I bought a Weedeater with a Briggs and Stratton engine less than 4 months ago. While mowing thick grass (all my grass is thick this year) it boggs down and gaggs out. Fuel starts spitting out the vent...

You need to check two things. First, what size (horsepower) engine does it have? and second, how sharp is the blade? If you mowing that hard continuously, you'll need a very sharp mower with a good amount of horsepower or you'll just kill the poor thing. I would recommend you have at least 6 HP if that grass is giving you that much trouble. Be sure your blade is sharp (sounds like it's not) or it will just bash the grass down instead of cutting it off. Have your blade professionally sharpened, or better yet, buy a new one. They only run around $15 USD for a standard 22 inch blade. I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

Poulan pro 20hp 42" lawn mower running rough

My immediate impression is that the float is "stuck open".

Pull the float-bowl, and check that:

a. the bowl and float are clean, and
b. the float moves freely, and
c. when it's in the "up" position, the flow of gas stops (which means that the needle is "seating" properly and doing its job)
