Is the vent in the fuel tank cap open?

Sounds like a lack of fuel. If an engine quits instantly, it is usually an electrical problem. If it sputters and dies, it is usually a fuel problem. Remember, every rule can be broken! If it is running, and in the lowest gear, sounds like lack of power, ie insufficient fuel. Disconnect the hose to the air cleaner- if it runs fine forever, your air cleaner is clogged. Not fuel, but insufficient air for combustion. Often overlooked. If it is a fuel problem, look for an obstruction between the tank and carb. Oftentimes crud in the fuel tank blocks the exit hole, or fuel bowl, carb inlet, etc. Might need a carb cleaning, rebuild kit if the needle valves or seats are bad. Many times all you need is a cleaning an readjust the load screw.

Could be several things.

Have you done any recent repairs/maintenance on the tractor?

I would due a complete tune up and routine maintenance on the tractor. Plugs, points, condensor, clean the air cleaner, clean the fuel filter (and check for fuel flow volumn), adjust the valve tappets. Lub, engine oil and oil filter, check all fluid levels.

I would also put about 1/2 can of fuel system cleaner in the gas tank.
