Toro personal Pace Motor Slows Down

One question about my Personal Pace mower. I might need to bring it to shop. The mower is like it goes into a slow run for about maybe a minute or two while mowing. Same height grass as the rest of yard where it ran full speed. Not a surge, but it just slows way down and runs like that for a minute or two and then speeds up again to normal. I will pull bowl off carb and clean jet and see if maybe water issue in gas. I added one of those little red mesh filters inline on my fuel line, could that be the issue. I got so sick of cleaning the jet on my ex's mower that I put one on each of our mowers and asked her to also filter her gas through a coleman lantern funnel when she fills her. this prob with my motor has me perplexed and i might just take it to shop if I can't get it figured out. The mower is a Toro personal Pace Model 20334, Serial number 310017498.

Did the mower run good before you installed the filter? It could be restricting gas flow.
Have you tried loosening the gas cap when it slows down?

It looks like you have a Briggs engine with auto choke, are the carb springs in place and not stretched?

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
