The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

its likely to be a switch playing you up try hard wireing the switch to see if it stops this cutting out first, do one switch at a time till you fine the one playing up

Let me guess, as soon as it sets still for a few hours, it fires straight up again, like there was no problem? :D
If you have one with the Kohler 12.5 Command Pro Engine:
These have a known issue with the ignition pickup/coil assembly. If you feel confident in your skills, removing the upper engine shroud will reveal the coil pack. Loosen the bolts and adjust it's width from the flywheel using a business card as a feeler gauge to set the gap. The card should just *slightly* bind between pickup and flywheel. If it STILL stalls and stumbles and eventually quits AFTER it is hot as you describe, likely the coil pack is tired and worn. Heat will make them short out internally as internal windings expand from heat. Replacement is the only cure. About $40 from Kohler, about $60 from John Deere.
