Engine stalls under load

I have a Sears 5 hp auger run 2 stage. When using the snow blower it will stall even with slightest amount of snow. I have a Craftsman 1 stage and it will not stall with same amount of snow. Could it be a bad spark plug or carb problem?
Thank you

Hello Aussiedog!

Could be, probably is, a carb problem. Try backing out the high speed mixture screw under the carb a bit and see if that helps. Try choking it a little when it begins to die out. If that helps, it's time to clean the carb.
