    We bought a 60" Bobcat Z with a 23hp kawi last year. Its got close to 500hrs on it now. Yesterday it started to bog out. It runs fine at idle but when I start to drive it bogs down some and then even more when I engauge the blades. Any suggestions to what it might be?

    Air or fuel filter clogged? Exhaust manifold/ muffler blocked by carbon deposits?

    Air and fuel filter are both brand new and are fine.
