Engine seems to foul out

Customer Question

engine seems to foul out after mowing for 20 to 30 min. This seems to be triggered when slightest load is put on engine. After 20 or 30 min of mowing, turning up hill or taller grass will make engine run like being chocked out. After fouling or chocking begins, there is strong oder of stale gas or turpintine. After engine sits for an hour it will start fine, and will run and mow for another 30min or so. This cycle will keep repeating. This has ben going on for last 50 engine hrs. I have drained and blown out tanks and fuel lines. Replaced all filters and fluids. this is an X one with Kawasiki fx 850v-bs12. Purchased new approx 3yr ago.
Thank you Jim XXXX
