Well, the problem with having it now, is that all the lawns are growing and they need to be cut every week. I could have gotten a loaner from my dealer, but they price that they cost, is less than I'll make in the next few days. I have 3rd quarter exams mon-wed so that's what I'll be spending my weekend primarily on. Unfortunately, not lawn care...

The dealer got my mower back to me today. They said that they tested it and it seemed fine to me. They said that it was probably that I was trying to cut thick, wet grass too fast and the mower would choke up. BUT THEY DON'T LISTEN! I told them that it happens even when the mower is concrete! I knew they were going to say that... I tested it out as soon as I got home from school and it the engine would still slow down when the blades were on and they cruise control stick was in 6th gear. The mower was not moving, but just put in 6th (ESC lets you lock it in neutral, anyone who has an exmark knows what I'm talking about)

The only other thing I thought of is that with the blades on and it in 6th gear, the mower is smart enough to open the throttle up and with the mower sitting still, the engine is getting too much fuel. The next thing I need to do is turn the blades on and actually DRIVE in 6th gear....hopefully that will do it...
after reading this post I would have thought you have a transmission issue still could be a power issue from fuel(or other cause) but not as likely the way I understand it now. That is why it is hard to troubleshoot over the internet we can read post wrong.
