Question about Garden
My Cub Cadet LT 1046 has been sitting in the shed for about 4 months, and we had to jump start it with a vehicle. It started, stayed running, but then died. Started again, after jumping it again, started, took cables off, but then nothing. Is it the battery, or something else?
Check the bottom of the carburetor for a little solenoid. If it has one, the battery may be dead enough that it can't keep the solenoid open causing the carb to shut off the fuel flow causing the unit to die. The easiest way to check if it works is by turning the key to the run position and listen and/or feel for the solenoid to click. If it clicks it is working and there is another problem, if it doesn't then replace it. I recommend having the battery tested or replaced too
