Question about Toro Garden
Not sure if it could be the pto switch or ignition switch or in one of the safety switches.. Can you please help me with this problem ???
Load test the PTO circuit as it may a connection that allows you to a voltage reading when unload and then once loaded drops out.
By load testing I mean leave the PTO clutch coil attached and test while it should be engaged.

PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:
My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:

what switch did you replace the one that turns it on or the safety switches in the middle of the circuit?

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.
