I don't have a ton of experience with the AH tractors, but I've had a few of them over the years. Currently I have a 4118, the tractor runs great, drives great, and does a fantastic job with the hydraulic snowblower, but the hydraulic 48" deck wants to stall the tractor when the PTO is engaged. All spindles are free, motor turns by hand, but really wants to bog the tractor down when using the tractor power/PTO. Is there something that I am missing, or does anyone have any tips or ideas? Thanks in advance.

The engine labors and wants to stall. This is all happening when the tractor is stationary in the barn, not even attempting to mow.

Is this a new sudden onset problem, or has it been getting worse over time?

My suspicion is the quick connects / hose on the mower deck are opposite the tractor ... i.e. your trying to power the deck motor in reverse. Try swapping the QCs on the mower deck (to stay compatible with your well working snow blower) and see what happens.
