Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage when the blades are engaged? If the voltage is dropping below 12 volts, the fuel solenoid in the carburetor will kill the engine. The voltage may be dropping, or the fuel solenoid could be failing.
