Cub Cadet Dies in Heavy snow

I have a Cub Cadet Snow Blower. It dies when it goes into thick snow. This is new this year. Used to plow though it like a charm! I thought maybe a bearing was out on my auger or something mechanical. I took it all apart, bearings were all good. Everything turns easy and looks just fine. So now it must be something engine related?? Other than dropping it off at a repair shop, any suggestions?

old fuel, carb and/or governor out of adjustment, throttle not at wot setting, weak plug, low oil...too name a few if nothing is binding as in belts, impeller, auger, pulleys, drive mechanism.
a cheap digital tach would tell you what rpms its set to at wot/full throttle

Bought a dead but now fixed 1980ish craftsman II 10/28....ITS ONE HEAVY BEAST

Frozen governor linkage not allowing the engine to ramp up?

Welcome to the forum! We really need more info on how exactly it behaves, to better understand the problem.

- Is it different when the engine is cold, vs hot and it's been blowing for a while?
- Does it get better or worse if you add partial choke?
- Any smoke from the engine?

What kind of engine? What model blower is this, and how old?
