Mower doesn't rev up with blades.

I have a 4 or 5 year old ever ride 32 walk behind and it sounds fine with its idle and not have the blades on but when i push down the blade engadge it doesn't rev up to a higher RPM. it sounds the same and the blades slowly pick up pace and then it will bog down once in a while if i go threw a little bit of higher grass. anyone know what this could be?

If the blades bog down..and engine speed is fine...you have a loose belt...

A few things to check if the engine is struggling to keep or gain rpm's under load......Loose plug or blown head gasket, choke and throttle adj out of synch.
