Not too surprising. Unless you use it very often, the battery will go flat fairly easily. Was the old battery tested to have failed? It is possible you have a bad alternator or connection to the alternator. An easy way to keep your battery is with a float charger; it keeps the battery charged to perfection and ready to go. I have no power to my shed, so I use a solar one. It cost about 34 dollars at Harbor Freight (.com) Farmerbear at

I have a poulan pro 500ex I would not start it does not even click at the soienoid. hrs. guage comes on. lights work. jumping the solenoid starts engine. but won't start by the key???

Sounds like a classic case of a corroded battery terminal. Take them off, scrape them clean and reinstall them. Slather some grease on them after you are done to keep them from getting corroded again.
