What size battery are you using currently? How old is the battery?
Battery is not big enough then. You needs 12V 300amp battery for the electric PTO. Electric PTO's use a lot of power to run.
Look on the sticker on the battery and what does it say the cranking amps are for it?
Okay. that is more like it. What is the voltage on the battery currently?
When you engage the PTO, what is the voltage while PTO running. Sounds like you have a bad Rectifier/Regulator This is what recharges the battery while engine running.
If your battery is reading 12.5V, sounds like the amps are not good. Take battery to auto parts store and have them load test it for you. They will do it for free. If you have charger, you can try slow charging overnight at 2-6amps, this may bring it back to par
test the battery while engine running and see how many volts it reads.
