B&s Quantum Push Mower Keeps Stopping

IF IT WASN'T FOR BAD LUCK, I'D HAVE NOT LUCK AT ALL.
ANYWAY I HAVE A 5HP B&S QUANTUM PUSH MOWER THAT STARTS PRETTY EASY BUT AS SOON AS U START TO PUSH THE MOWER IT BEGINS TO LOSE POWER AND THEN DIES. EVEN IF I ADJUST THE THROTTLE CONTROL IT SEEMS TO HAVE NO AFFECT.

This may seem like a foolish question but I must ask...Does it have fuel in the gas tank? I'll assume the answer is yes, so, has this been happening alot lately or just the last time you used it? Has the mower been serviced (tuned up) recently? Had it been running without any signs of trouble, whatsoever, prior to the problem arrising? Any black smoke billowing from the muffler upon running? Is the air filter clean? Spark plug been changed lately?
