Ford LGT 18H

George Pins My Ford LGT 18H has a Kohler M18 engine and electric PTO. It runs fine without the mower deck, pulling a load on a trailer. With the mower deck (48") it will mow for about 15 minutes, then begin to sputter as if you had pulled the choke out. Shutting off the PTO will get it to rev up again. Leave the PTO engaged and it will sputter to a stop and cannot be restarted for several hours, when it is fine again. I have checked air filter, grass on cylinder casings, etc. Any theories? Must be heat-related? Is something in the carb shutting down? Is the PTO clutch overheating? Help!
