Have a 3 hp briggs on aerator. Will idle in fast(high). But when using it dies after one time around yard. Runs better in low with choke open halfway. Any suggestions to what is causing this problem and how to fix it. Thanks

check the fuel pick up in the tank. Make sure all carb gaskets are good and not sucking air. Try to adjust carb if you can.
