My b2320 (HSD) starts, idles, revs up to max fine.

when I try to move the machine fwd or reverse it rolls about 3 feet and starts to stall. I take my foot off the pedal and repeat....

I emptied & cleaned the fuel tank, fiddled with the PTO & seat switches, no luck.

any advice greatly appreciated!

When you move, does the engine cut out, or try to die? Difference between stalling and cutting out.

If you can run up the rev's without a hesitation, seems to me that you seat switch needs a little TLC, OR you have the brake on! Gonna say you dont have the brake on;).......

I had a stalling issue that drove me nuts. It was finally found in the fuel filter housing that the little shut off valve that closes when you take the filter off was plugged and wouldn't allow fuel to go past the fuel filter housing. I was able to use an air compressor and blow the blockage out. Works like new now.

Sounds like restricted fuel flow. You have enough flow to start and run at high idle but not enough to run under load.
Open the fuel line downstream of the filter and check for full fuel flow. Fuel should gush out CONTINUOUSLY. If it dribbles or is intermittent then work your way back through the fuel delivery system to the tank to find the restriction. If you haven't changed the fuel filter then do that too. Check for a pinched fuel line, a clogged filter head, etc. Do you have a lift pump in the system? Is it working?
