We have a Briggs and Stratton mower and everytime we engage the blades the motor stops running, any ideas?

If you haven't already googled your problem try that. You will probably find forums where people have had the same problem as you and with any luck you can find out how to fix it yourself from that info or YouTube videos.
Based on past experience with Craftsman and John Deere mowers I can tell you that it could possibly be due to the ethanol in the fuel (if you aren't treating it) or the seat sensor that shuts off the mower if you get off of it while blades are engaged.

Thank you! We did google it but every site I found they want you to pay to get answers and I am not paying 17.00 for a maybe. We did disconnect the seat switch and that didn't seem to be the issue.
I didn't think about youtube, thanks for that idea!!!

Check to see if something wrapped up around the blades.

Is this a riding mower? I'm guessing it is. They are built with a seat sensor that turns off the engine if the seat is not occupied. The sensor can go bad or not be in the proper place and turning the blades on grounds out the engine.
