Why is my mower not wanting to engage the blades right?

2013 cub cadet 1050. When I engage the mower deck it wants to sputter to a stop. If I mess with the throttle a little it will come on and mow perfectly. Sometimes it just does its little sputtering fit and will engage. New belt, spindles, blades, and fuel filter.

@stevenstickley make sure that you replace/clean the air filter and the spark plugs. A plugged air filter or faulty plugs can cause the engine to run rich. after you check on that I would recommend checking the choke/carburetor. If the mower still bogs down after that, the problems is most likely a carburetor. A good cleaning of the jets and float (needle valve) and setting the choke should work.

It runs perfect when the decks off and after the mower finally engages, that's what threw me off a little

It sounds like it is choking when you put a load on the engine which is commonly caused by a carb that is running to rich.
