I have a countax c300h it starts great and runs, but as soon

Resolved Question:

I have a countax c300h it starts great and runs, but as soon as I engage the cutting head and go to move the engine struggles it works fine without the cutting head engaged. If I don't move the cutting heads work its only when I come to move and have to keep either nursing it or stop.

It sounds like the drive belt is slipping, engaging the cutting head is creating additional strain and causing it to slip.
You really need a mechanic to service the mower, as a good grease and adjusted drive belt and you should be working without any trouble.

It has had new cutting blades and belts fitted. The problem only happens when I go to move, its as if its going to stall. Standing still blades run perfect.
