It sounds an awful like a fuel flow issue, not an electrical issue, however just shutting down could be an electrical short too. A frayed wire may be making intermittent contact and thus shorting out so a thorough inspection of the entire wiring will determine. The gas cap was a good idea but why the key switch? The usual questions now - 6V/POS GRN or 12v/NEG GRN? Losing power on a grade could be governor not kicking in too. Maybe next time she mows plan on being there to perform usual tests as soon as it dies -spark/fuel flow.
