Murray rider issues

I have a Murray rider one of them cheapos you can get from Fleet Farm for 600 dollars (rear engone) the problem is when I run it as of late the lawn mower sounds like the engine idles at its norm them drops down then back up again over and over again it does it when the blade is engaged and when it is not engaged and when it is doing it you can actually feel the whole mower jerking kinda like it feels when you are running a car out of gas and running on fumes.anyone have any solution to what the problem may be??

I would flush the fuel system, you could have a small blockage. Look also for the governor spring...if the end isn't fastened, it can cause similar symptoms.
