Sounds like bad fuel....runs fine when not under stress but poops out under pressure. Drain fuel and refill with new mix if it's a 50/50 gas-oil blend.

Why does my riding mower die when put in gear or engage the blades


Check out the grass box safety switch. if not fully depressed it will apply brakes to the blades when in gear. Most mowers are designed with a safety switch to stop the blades, or forward motion if the grass box is not fitted correctly.

My landlords toro riding mower starts fine but as soon as i touch the shifter to put it in gear it dies over and over..carb is clean and new gas with stabilizer


There are several safety switches that prevent operation in case the rider falls off, etc. First check seat safety switch...the likely culprit. It must close ensuring a person is in the seat for movement or blade operation. Find a toro wiring diagram, or visually wire trace, or just inspect the proper operation of all safety switches. DO NOT BYPASS SAFETY SWITCHES, but ensure they are working properly for SAFE OPERATION.
