Question about Garden
First I would disconnect the PTO and do a charge voltage check to make sure that the voltage regulator is working.
Sounds more like a partially shorted PTO clutch winding but the above should be checked first.
Check it using either an amp meter or an ohm meter.
Normal amperage draw is between 5-7 amps.
Normal resistance approximately 2 ohms. Anything under 1.7 ohms is bad normally as this will produce a current draw of +7 amps..

Locate and disconnect the power supply cord from the clutch. Remove the bolt, washer and retainer from the center of the clutch, It should now slide off the end of the crankshaft provided you have previously removed anything such as body parts or braces that would be in the way. In some instances penetrating oil must be used to help free it up. When you reassemble it, it is a good idea to use a little bit of anti-seize on the engine shaft in case you have to remove it in the future.
