Is the belt loose? Maybe you need to replace the belt. Check the throw arm for the idler pulley if it's a manual engagement. Also, make the sure you belt and all pullies are clean. If they have grease or anything else on them, the belt might slip off.

If it's an electric clutch, possibly some wire is crossed and disengaging the clutch.

I dont know nothing about bobcat, but if it is a electric pto low battery charge will do this. The pto needs all the juice to stay engaged.This happened to one of my toro's.

Maybe you can adjust the throw arm where it connects the idler, it usually has an eye bolt that can be tighted or loosen to adjust he amount of throw.

Check the belt and see if it's too tight.

I dought it's to tight, usually if the belt is tensioned right the lever will sort of pop into place real snuge, i don't know exactly how to explian it but if the belts loose the lever won't tighten up correctly and it will wander back. Thats what i think it probly is. Or one of the linkages could be bent.
