My mower isn't getting power but battery is good I was mowing stopped turned it off and now nothing

If the battery passes a load test..then check the battery connections make sure they are clean and if you push with your hand that the connections don't move from side to side or up or down, if they do tighten connections. When you go to start if no lights come on and there is absolutely no sound when you turn the key..Check wires at ignition switch. If there is nothing that lights up, and does nothing, no sound when you go to crank..battery connections is the most likely problem..clean with wire brush and make sure connections are tight.

Everything works fine until I engage the PTO for the mower deck. The battery discharge light comes on and eventually the battery goes dead.

The PTO clutch is an electro magnet. There is probably a dead short within the clutch body. Replace the Clutch.

John deere L108.drives for about 2 minutes mowing and stops.leave for about 15 mins and will go again.puffs of smoke when put under load


The puffs of smoke when you put the machine under a load make me think that your carburetor is loading up and needs to be adjusted. Adjust the fuel/air adjustment screws on the carb until it runs properly.

Was Mowing in a area the Electric Co had done some tree work. I hit a stick of wood about 7 inches long and 3 inches thick. It stopped the tractor cold!!!!! I was able to extract the wood OK The blade...

I would also check the fly wheel key It could have sheared off You will need to fix this first before going ahead and finding out your other problems But it sounds to me like you have a broken wire somewhere on the starter circuit

LT1000 Will not start no clicking no turning over just dead

Do you have a multitester? A multitester set on vdc, should tell you if your battery has discharged. Should have about 12.5 to 13.0 volts for the engine to turn over. Could be a fuse, or bad connection. How corroded are the battery terminals?
Hope that helps.

My JD riding mower just stopped during a recent mowing

There was a time when my JD just quit and did nothing. After doubting the battery that is what it was-the battery. Jump start your JD and if it starts up then your battery needs replaced.
