How old is your battery?
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.
If your battery is not maintaining a full charge, as you are out mowing, this can cause your pto clutch to disengage, although your engine is running.
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

You have a 7.5 amp fuse for your pto clutch. Your fuse is probably okay, due to your clutch engaging on in a while.

If your battery is okay, then you and I can do some troubleshooting, to find the problem. Thanks!
