Check for clogged carbs. It has probably sat for a while without draining the carbs, right?

What is the trick to starting a new riding mower?

Make sure it has gas and at the bottom of the tank open the valve that allows gas flow. By the steering wheel there should also be a choke. Make sure it is closed for startup.

Truck cranks and cranks but wont start

check and see if the gas is getting to the carb, maybe a bad fuel pump. open gas cap and listen for the pump as someone else turns on the key.should hear the pump run a few seconds.

Won't start its like its not getting gas. I can turn the key and pump on the gas it will rev up and shut off. I thought it was the fuel pump so I changed it and that didn't solve the problem what else can...

maybe its bad gas, or an idle issue. you shouldnt have to pump the gas when you start that can actually lead to flooding the engine with gas. Turn the key on and wait about 30 secs before cranking this will ensure your getting proper amount of gas to injector lines. It may take a bit to get rid of gas in there but keep doing it until it starts properly. Also note in doing this do not continuously crank it as the starter and solenoid will fry. Also if you fear there is no gas going to engine look for a gas line bleeder valve. Looks like a tire valve head and usually is covered with a black plastic lid. If you push it in and gas squirts out then your getting gas to engine. If you release all gas and turn the key on and test gas line again and no gas comes out then its what is called a dry start, aka no gas getting to motor. Hence failure of fuel filter or fuel pump. Or a general clog in gas line.
