:eusa-think: If the PTO has a break, it some time squeals, but usually while  shuttin  down. :twocents-02cents:  It could also be outside bearing which only revolves with PTO on. Internal needle bearing is "revolved in" by crank race when PTO off. Check to see if your clutch ring is down to rivets or down to face of clutch plate. Last but not least ?belt slippage? If outer edge of belt is too far worn may not be fittin where should. Hope of some help to ya! :)

Mine is non-electric... regular PTO... if I just 'throw' the handle forward to engage, belt will squeal.  If I engage slowly, it won't...

It's easier on the belt if you throttle back some & engage pto slowly then re-apply throttle after pto engages completely.

What are you powering with the PTO, mower deck?  What is the condition of the belt?  Is it properly tensioned?

Sounds more like the belt is squealing

Anyone have a picture of the PTO face to face? I would like to know what it's suppose to look like, is there suppose to be some kind of material in there, like a clutch, or brake pad, or is it metal to metal? Mine looks like it's just metal to metal, I don't see any rivets or wear marks, it looks pretty smooth. I have trouble with it slipping when mowing if I get into any grass that's a little to tall or thick, and I mean just a little, I have to really stay on top of my mowing or it just don't want to cut.

Take the outer portion off and look at the clutch facing. It is a fiber type facing and may be held on to the backing plate with rivets. Some are bonded to the plate. If the clutch facing material is worn out you will  get slippage under load.

As good as Martins are...I have to argue the point for Middleswarth Barbecue especially in the kettle cooked variety. Or possibly Gibbles plain....something about the Gibbles being cooked in lard....awesome flavor!!

Sometimes it's just a matter of putting more pressure on the clutch by simply adjusting the trunnion at the end of the clutch rod.
