husky, rider

Hi, My Husky rider has 43 hrs on it. It is a great mower. The second to last time I used it, the engine starting dying after a few minutes under a load. If I turn the blades off, it ran ok.
I changed the in line fuel filter. I ran it today and it worked great until I hit a slope. The engine sputered then died. For the remainder of the mowering, it would run a few minutes, die. Once backfired. I am at wits end. Can anyone advise?

Thank you.

There is a Husquvarna, and then there is a Huskee mower. They are quite different, so which do you have? What engine is on it?

With the info so far, my best guess is water in the carb.

I would say clean out the carburetor. The carb on that engine isn't very tolerant of trash at all. You may find water in the bowl as well.
