Husqavarna - Engine bogs down when blades engaged

I've got a Husqavarna riding mower and my engine just started to bog down and comes close to stopping when I engage the blades.. It's only about 3 years old..any ideas?

Could be as simple as a dirty air filter, or fouling spark plug....

But it could also be several other things, let us know what brand and model engine is on your mower, and I am sure everyone can come up with ideas of things for you to check.

Glad you got it but for what little the cost is, I'd replace the air and pre-filters and treat it to a new spark plug and fuel filter. An oil change is good preventative maintenence as well.
