    Are the gas tanks full? How are the fuel lines? It could also be the float sticking and flooding the engine on hills.

    Does it blow out any smoke when it stalls?

    I'd say its probibly a fuel problem If it blows black smoke when it stalls then its being flooded but if it doesn't smoke then i'd say its not getting enough fuel.

    The Craftsman with a 19.5HP twin has the same problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Some Command Series engines have a sensor mounted along side the starter,If you go on too steep of incline it will intermitt the ignition system thus telling you it is unsafe.

    Some engines have a low oil sensor that is set off if the engine is a little low on oil and then placed on a hill thereby activating the sensor and shutting down the engine. Is the oil level OK?
