Check simple things first, is the battary good, are the conections on the battary tight, is the deck engaged, are you sitting firmly in the seat, have you fully depressed the clutch/brake pedal, the last three items are to make sure the saftey switches are dissabled

I have a cub cadet LT1024, with a Kohler 24hp ELS725 motor. When I turn on my ignition key, there is a 2 second delay before the motor begins to crank. What is wrong with my tractor?

Hi Martin,
I would recommend replacing the key switch part number 430-445. This is a common part to have go bad.

You can call a shop like and ask for the part 430-445. Tell them Joe M sent you and they can get you the part quickly.

Let me know if I can help further.

My riding lawn mower turns over but not fast enough to fire cant figure out whats wrong please help

I assume an electric start. Slow cranking could be low battery voltage or capacity. Check battery voltage with a digital volt meter. It should be 12.6 volts. (Unless it is a 6 volt battery which should read 6.3V when charged.) Under 11 volts it is dead.

To check capacity see how much the battery voltage drops while cranking. It shouldn't drop more than a volt.

Not firing on ignition appears that mice have

Are the mice in the crank case?Either way that should not bother your fire.Check that the mice have not damaged your plug wire .
Make sure the battery is charged.
Check ignition wires for damage.
