good afternoon, my name is ***** ***** is a common issue and the first thing you need to check is that the PTO shaft slides in and out without severe binding. when the mower raises and lowers the shaft needs to be able to telescope or it will pull and push on the PTO stub shaft. another thing that will happen is the slip clutch will not slip when the blades come into contact with a heavy force. loosen the bolts on the slip clutch and turn on the PTO. after your sure the disc's are not binding tighten down the bolts and give it a run.
