Take off the plate around the shift lever between your legs and take a look at the belts. Most likely they will be in poor condition. You can even leave the trans in neutral, start the engine and move the speed selector through the gears and observe the belts in action. They do the same in neutral as in gear when you let out the clutch with the engine running. You should be able to see what the problem is, It will either be one or both of the belts or possibly the needle bearings in the vari-speed pulley itself,

Hi this sounds like there is a spot of dirt in tne fuel system
you will need to dismantle the carburettor which is quite straight forward (be careful not to lose any screws or gaskets
guive the carburettor a good rinse in neat petrol/gasoline and blow out any debris that may be there.
re assemble the carburettor and prime with fuel and you should then be ok.
One other thought if you have found that the motor runs fine without being on the grass (eg it doesn't cut out after a minute or two) then it could be that you have the cutting blades set too low for your first cut. To raise the blade adjust the height of the wheels. Always start cutting with a high setting especially if the lawn hasn't been cut for a while.
hope this helps
