    Hello, have a turf tracer hp w/15hp kawasaki engine. have had the mower since i started 3 years ago with no problem until recently. What happens........the mower will run fine for a while and then it'll start stuttering and eventually just die on me while i am mowing. I can crank it right back up and then it'll die on me again sometimes backfiring when it dies. This is what I have done/checked and it has continued to do this.......

    -change oil
    -change spark plugs
    -check air filter
    -empty gas and replace with fresh gas
    -check hydro fluid(haven't ever changed)

    it was doing this before and after i had done these things. was wondering if it is electrical problem???? or maybe something else i may have overlooked.

    please let me know as soon as you can. i would like to fix without paying ridiculous shop prices.

    Adjust your odc levers on your ecs handles( I think thats what they are called, I had the exact same problem, use a allen wrench and adjust them so your switch is being pushed in all the way. It worked for me, John
