Sure sounds like a fuel supply problem. It gets enough gasoline to idle, but not to pull a load. Filter plugged, bad transfer pump, wood chip or rag over intake in fuel tank, any number of things that would block the supply of fuel.

Concur sounds like classic case of starving for fuel...
Kill engine, try pouring a bit right into carb (assuming downdraft carb!), let set for 15 secs or so...will start as if flooded (which it will be) but then should rev up until fuel you poured in is burned...
