There should either be a little button at the base of the headrest that you push, or a small hole in the rod part, with a hole in it. Push in the hole with a pen, or a small nail to release the headrest.

that is incorrect. if the oil has been over filled, it will saturate the filter element by way of the crankcase breather tube. it is the small plastic pipe that connects to the bottom of the filter housing. check the oil level. these machines take very little oil. approx 20 oz. if overfilled, it will leak out filter.

Hi and welcome toFixYa, I am Kelly.
When you say it stalls is this fuel starvation or does it act like you shut off the ignition switch?
This should have the Honda GXC160 5.5 Hp engine on it. With the fuel selector off, have someone one remove the float bowl and check for debris in the very bottom of the float bowl. Also use come carb cleaner and spray into the main fuel jet located in the threaded are where the bowl nut screws into. The main fuel jet has a pin hole in it that must be free of obstructions.
Since this is a new unit you may just have some dried fuel in the fuel passages. With the float bowl off use a spray paint can lid and turn on the fuel selector. It should fill the lid in 8 - 10 seconds to the point you will shut off the fuel before it overflows. If you do not have this kind of fuel flow start looking at the main fuel line from the tank to the fuel selector. Check for a fuel filter and a debris bowl. I think the debris bowl is located directly under the fuel selector. It unscrews CCW for cleaning. Just clean it out and re-install same.
The last thing to check is to remove the main fuel line from the carb and check fuel flow. You should have good fuel flow with the fuel ine disconnected. If you do have good fuel flow here and you stilhave the stalling problem the float will have to be removed and the float needle will also have to be removed with the float. Once the float and float needle are removed spray carb cleaner into the float needle hole to force any debris back out the main fuel line connection.
Re-assemble everything... turn on the fuel... check for leaks and then start the unit. This should solve the stalling problem. If it presists... the pilot jet will need adjusted. This is absolutely the last resort repair because if you do anything to this screw you must replace the pilot valve screw and cover. It also mandates the use of loctite 638 on the tear drop shaped screw cap. (the old cap breaks off for pilot scre removal.) See check sheet below.
Here is the carb check sheet:
