loss of power in power takeoff

bob s I have an Oliver super77. I've mowed weeds for a couple of years with it. I have a 5 ft mower from farm and fleet that was new last year. Anyhow I was trying to mow yesterday and the mower would stop turning when the weeds got a little thick, I would have to come to a stop, let the mower rev up again and then move forward. This is taking forever, I don't remember having a power loss like this last year. The engine maintains its rpm's, just the pto loses power. Anybody help?
Jason The PTO shaft stops turning? You more than likley have a sheild over the shaft so may not see. Look and see if the Shaft is turn when the cutter is not. Sounds like the slip clutch on the cutter. Do you keep it outdoors? The weather causes the discs to shrink. If not the tractor PTO clucth may need some adjustment.

I am sure I don't have to say but do not grab or get near with hands feet or cloths a PTO shaft with the tractor running
