Keep it clean, free of debris, and proper adjustment. Make sure all spindles and idlers are straight, well lubed, and in proper working order. If it is electric PTO, always engage at about 1/2 throttle, and always disengage at idled down rpm's (this last one about the disengaging is actually to save life on the clutch).
