Just wondering have you checked the deck for any bad bearings and the bearings of the pto shaft from clutch to rear pulley? Are the blades sharp and the deck not packed with grass. Dull blades take more power than sharp blades. When it starts to bog does pulling the choke out a little help?

Being that he mowed last year without event in 2nd gear tells you that the engine is capable. Something has changed or failed.
Do check the timing with a timing light at wide open throttle (2400 RPM).
In case you are measuring RPM's at the PTO, the PTO should be turning (no load) at 1970 RPM when the engine is running at 2400 RPM.
