Question about Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
I bought a used riding mower a few weeks ago. I test drove it. It seemed to have a hard time cranking over but eventually did. Once I brought it home I started it once a day, for a few days until I could take it up north to my cottage. One day it would not start, I ordered a new starter, installed it and nothing. The mower won't even try to crank over. Any help
What is the name brand and model? On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. If there is a handle that engages and disengages them, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse. Also, you should check the battery. It is possible that you left the key on by mistake and drained it.
Hope some of this helps.
