Scag bogging down

I have a Scag turf tiger with a 27 kohler and it has started bogging down and stalling while mowing hillsides. I have changed the fuel filter and it has just been serviced and still continues to bog down. Any ideas???

If it bogs down while going up the hills while mowing then change the fuel filter. If it still has issues then there may be water in the carb bowl. Clean carb and blow out. Drain fuel cells and add fresh fuel - replace fuel filter again.
