Hello,
Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Fuel and ignition problems are most common and these are amplified under a load more so than other problems are in terms of the problem. Always start by checking compression and if good move on to replacing spark plugs (cannot tell by looking at them) if that doesn't help then using a timing light under engine load/problem if no misfires then move to checking air and exhaust issues if none found now it's time to inspect the fuel system making sure correct flow to carb and then cleaning the carb using a rebuild kit for reassembly. Your also checking to make sure unit is not flooding, this can be done with brand new spark plugs start engine and as soon as the problem shut it down pull the spark plugs and inspect how they look esp if wet.
