Toro S 200

Bought snowblower, leaked gas, replaced check valve, diaphram, etc. Starts fine, engine speeds up when throttle lever is moved by hand. First time use in snow, engine dies when you place it under load, ie, blow snow. This model has no throttle, what makes the throttle open when it needs power? Could the idle be set too low? Advice and info appreciated. Thanks

Go to Toro website---homeowners--parts
type in your model # off plate on machine ( not s-200 )
click on your serial #
Get carb. info........... or details showing governor linkage.........
Sounds like your governor spring is broken--or some part of governor.
Have fun...................
