Question about Oregon Scientific Electric PTO Clutch for Cub Cadet, MTD and Warner
When I start to use the mower, the pto will turn on just fine, but then after you mow a few mintues it shuts off. Sometimes I can get it going again, but it usually quits at least once every round I do. I just had it in to cub cadet dealer for this problem and he replaced a relay (and charged me $35 to replace a perfectly fine belt) but it still acts up all the time.
I had the exact same issue early this mowing season on a LT1045 with 184 hours on it. On a wild hunch I lifted the seat and simply sprayed the PTO shut-off safety switch with electronic contact cleaner/enhancer and have had to problems since.

So, it's not the relay, and the clutch does work- when it's working. Have you checked the wiring connections; from primary to relay, from switch to relay, from relay to clutch, etc. Also, I would check the switch contacts and the engage switch itself. It may be defective.
One way to possibly track down the problem is to start the mower in neutral and engage the PTO. While the mower is running and the deck is engaged, go over the wires and connections to see if you can find the source of the problem by giggling the plugs and connections. Just be careful of the rotating blades!
