It's probably not the cable, but the idler arm on the deck that the pulley that tightens up the belt is not moving back and forth freely, probably from rust. Spray penatrating oil on the pivot point while working it back and forth until it frees up. If still having problems, let me know. Dwain

This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

Testimonial: "Hit on the head with such a simple solution"
I'm wondering if your battery is going bad or if it does not have enough capacity for the cold weather.
Do you have the headlights on? Does it last longer without loading down with them turned off? If you turn them on does it start to load up faster?
The alternator on these tractors are generally large enough for normal applications and keeps the battery charged, but factors like cold weather and heavy loads, they can't keep up.
If you battery is getting older and won't hold a charge well this may be the real cause.
If you decide this is the problem, buy the battery with the biggest capacity that will fit.

I would check the PTO switch with a meter, some switches uses 3 or 4 wires 1 or 2 is for the light and the other goes to the clutch. Part of the switch could be bad. Check the voltage on the connector before the switch.

You didn't state the model or brand of tractor, but usually the way the cranking circuit work is, from the "S" terminal of the ignition switch, the circuit runs to the PTO switch, if it's in the OFF position, the circuit then runs to the pedal switch, if it's in the DOWN (or brake on) position it then runs to the solenoid. On other tractors, from the ignition switch, the circuit runs to the pedal switch first. (The seat switch isn't used in the cranking circuit).
Any switch can go bad, but I would more likely suspect the pedal switch or loose connection at either switch. (But it could actually be the PTO switch).
Try tracing the circuit from the "S" terminal of the ignition switch through the PTO or pedal switches to the starter solenoid. You may get lucky and find something obvious.
If you find nothing, try jumping across the pedal or the PTO switch (only two terminals are used in the cranking circuit, trace back to ignition switch for the incoming, outgoing is usually directly adjacent). Jumpering will take these out of the circuit and tell you if either is bad internally.
Lastly, there's always the possibility that the ignition switch is bad. (Doesn't happen all that often, but it's suspect as well). Jumper from "B" terminal to "S" terminal will take it out of the circuit.
