Murray Riding Mower Dies When Put in Gear

I have a Murray riding mower model 405000X8. It starts fine and idles fine. Put it in gear and it dies. It also dies when I engage the blade. It will not go forward or backward without shutting down. Thanks for your help.

Are you giving it enough power. Safety features require you to be seated with the brake on when you put it in gear or reverse so it doesn't jump. It will not mow in reverse, another safety feature. Perhaps you know all this.

Another thought, how's the fuel filter?

The engine on my riding mower will start and run while the clutch is pushed in. Let off on clutch and engine dies. I have cleaned the carb with cleaner and installed new spark plugs.
