Cub Cadet 2160: Mower Shuts Down When Mower Deck is Engaged
I have a Cub Cadet 2160 and the tractor runs fine by itself. The problem happens when the mower deck is on. The tractor last about two minutes before the engine shuts down. If I shut the mower deck down first, the tractor regains power and runs fine. Any thoughts on what this happening?

I tried that... didn't work. I can mow for 30 seconds or so before it starts to shut down. If I disengage the the mower deck, the engine regains power. I wait a minute and can mow another 30 seconds or so. I can however turn the mower on at the highest position and it works fine, but is too high to cut grass.
