Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Engine just dies? You don't release brake or turn on pto? Check the fuel solenoid in the base of the carburetor, it has to stay open for engine to continue to run. Has to have 12 volts until key is turned off. Best test is to remove it and plug the hole.
