Are your safety switches hooked up? have you checked your wiring? sounds like a switch, hard to say without seeing the mower.

safety switches meaning the handle bars?? i cant think of a safety switch

something is is making the engine die when i engage the blades or when i can get them one for a few secs there okay until the engine starts forcing and dying ,in that case i turn off the blades and the engine runs back to normal idle...

Hmmmm....
Remove your deck belt and try engaging the deck and see if it dies then, if it does you have a clutch or electrical / safety switch issue.
If it keeps running fine with out the deck belt hooked up then you have resistance somewhere, in a spindle or a pulley or something restricting the belt.

It could be the clutch, it could also be your safety switches in the handle bars.

From a Hustler dealer.
If you can email me I can email you the contact information for the distributor that sets up the Canadian Hustler dealers.
