PTO For blades shuts off when accelerating to quickly

On my John Deere 430. I am curious why my pto for the blades shut off when I accelerate to quickly from a complete stop. The only way to keep that from happening. I have to ease the acceleration slowly to keep the blades from disengaging. Does anyone else have this same issue?

Sounds like one of two problems. 1.) safety switch/electrical or PTO - where with enough vibration or lateral force shorts a wire out. 2.) PTO is out of adjustment, check to make sure that it is at 0.018" or little less all the way around (there are 3 slots for the thickness gauge to be inserted when checking)
