Welcome to MTF. First thing would be to check the deck to make sure it is running freely. If there is a stuck bearing or something bent it could be loading down the engine. If the deck is OK then you need to look at the engine. I'm sure others will offer you more advice.

I want to welcome you to GTtalk, I'm sure that JDBrian meant the same thing. I need a little more info, does the tractor bog down with mower on and moving, or just when mower is on and sitting still?
