    Sounds like a PTO clutch problem to me. We had the same issue with our Cub earlier this year. $600 later she was good as new!!! I hope for your sake you get of cheaper..

    Sounds like the charging system is not functioning, Blown fuse near the starter/bad ground at regulator or bad regulator/bad stator or magnets came loose from the inside of the flywheel.
