What engine does the mower have in it/ If you remove the fuel line at the carburetor , do you have fuel when cranking?Is there a fuel ump and filter between the tank and the carburetor?Have you changed or cleaned the fuel filter?

Engine is getting starved for fuel. Always a supply problem, tank, hose from tank, or first filter, up to the fuel transfer pump, if it has one.
