Q:

tractor will riun for a short time , increase and decrease rmp and then stall will only start on full choke and dies under load although yesterday ran longer

A:

You indicated that you checked the oil and the air filter. If the gas is older than 30 days, I recommend that you try draining the gas tank and refilling it with fresh fuel.

If the engine is still running rough and you have followed all of the maintenance tips and operating instructions in the owner's manual, then the tractor will likely need service. (Here is a link for the owner's manual: Owner's Manual .)

Since it is that new, this tractor should still be under warranty. This model appears to have a 2 year warranty. You can call 1-800-469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME) for service. An agent will likely go over some additional troubleshooting tips and then schedule service if necessary.
