Might want to do a leak down or compression check but from the sounds of it the engine is kinda small for a ZTRR.

Sharpen the blades and check the oil.

Could be a bad pulley have you turned them by hand with the engine off?

yes pullys are fine - it also does this going up hill - dont get me wrong i can cut the 1/2 acre and it will do it on and off but mostley when going up slight hill with blades on or thick patch of grass -

Sounds like the engine is either worn out or has fuel issue may try adjusting the carb. I think you should do a compression/leak down test. It's a time cutter so don't expect it to do much. Also, Those engines are only good for less than 1000 hours maybe around 500?

Yea, those engines don't last compared to the commercial ones, but a new engine should not be that much more expensive than to have someone tear the old one down and replace items internally. With that stuff, just buy the whole thing!!

sounds like its one or two things. Sounds like the engine is worn out (not enough horses for the zero turn) or your air filtration is bad. Now I am assuming all other avenues have been pursued. check your air filiter. I am assuming this did not do this when you first got the tractor?

No it did not always do this. I will try it with the air filter off. And no grass backing up under it. I hope it's not a bad motor
