When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?

Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

Try starting my 19.5 hp craftsmanriding mower and no click and cross over the solnoid and it turns over but no start

If it is equipped with a seat safety switch it won't start unless someone is on the seat or the switch is bypassed (which you shouldn't do for safety concerns). You could also have a bad ignition switch which is not uncommon.
