The PTO is a mechanical pto. does it make a noise like it is ratcheting? Or is the shaft slipping all the way to the PTO clutch on the flywheel? If the shaft is slipping, the clutch disc on the flywheel may need to be replaced.See the PTO link above,

Thank you. ***** does not make a noise. In heavy grass, the shaft to the mower stops turning. It binds at 6 inches. When I raise the cutter to 8 inches, it cuts fine.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Then the clutch plate at the flywheel is slipping when the shaft stops. Repair would be splitting the tractor and replacing the drive disc.

Can be if you have to have a dealer do it.
