My 48" lesco/hydro with a 17 hp kawi walk behind started to bog down today when the blades were engaged. I blew out the air cleaner did't make any difference. I haven't checked the plugs yet. Could it be the coil? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I searched the threads for an answer but didn't come up with much. I'm sure the answer is here some place.

Loose spark plug or blown head gasket are a couple possibilities.

As MOW PRO suggested check your deck, You could have a idler pulley or blade spindle trying to lock up.
