I assume you have an electric PTO to run the blades, right? If so, and you don't have sufficient power to the system, it will die as it robs the current needed to hold open the fuel solenoid on the carb. Check the smaller red wire at the solenoid for breaks and a fuse holder. The fuse may be blown.
