eXmark loses power only when mower engaged

    My eXmark engine runs great, until I engage the mower, then the power drops dramatically. But, every so often something seems to release and I get full power while mowing. The mower has been maintained by my mechanic and this started happening after the spring tune-up and new belt. Any suggestions for him?

    If they are an authorized Exmark dealer, they should really need any "suggestions" other than to fix whatever they did since it wasn't doing it before the tune up and belt. They probably have the belt routed incorrectly somehow.

    What style air filter does this unit have? You did not post the spec# on the engine.

    probably needs new blade spindles as old as it is.
