 Gator won't idle

I have a GatorTX 4x2 with 8 hours and when I start it it will not idle just stall. Seems to keep doing this even after it is warmed up. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks

Robert;
Only 8 hours, how long have you had it? Is it possibly still under waranty? If it is past warranty with only eight hours then maybe stale gas may have something to do with it stalling. Possibly having a fuel stabilizer in the gas may have prevented the problem. I use it in anything that will sit over winter. Nobody ever proved to me beyond a doubt the it does any good, but they say it does, so I use it.
Frank.

I hope it still is I bought it in mid Aug. I always use stabilizer in my gas. It is something I do whenever I fill a 5 gallon can.

I'm sure the TX's are carbureted instead if injected but in either case I'd be the last to tell you to start adjusting something I know just enough about to mess it up. Even if the warranty is up I think a call to the dealer might be your surest way.
Frank.
