Does a bad battery cause my tractor to not turn over?


Yes. Verify it is the battery by jumping mower off with car battery. If turns over, replace battery. If cannot turnover by jumping, try bypassing start solenoid by tapping positive cable to battery post on starter. Starter should turn. If starter doesn't turn, have starter tested.
