Customer Question

My Dixie chopper runs top notch till I engage the blades. Then bogs down. Replaced battery cables. I'm at a loss. Had in shop 3 times and spent lots of money. Always/annually ends up with same problem

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

This sounds like the engine may only be running on one cylinder. Have you checked spark on both cylinders? Have you checked push rods on both cylinders?
