If you replaced the battery with a new one and it is not holding a charge, then your charging system is not putting out enough power to run the mower AND recharge the battery. So you need to figure what is wrong in the charging system.

The electric clutch draws current while engaged. It is quite hungry on power which means that if the battery is low, the generator may not be making enough to charge the battery and hold the clutch in too. This is why the batteries on these machines are so large relative to say an ATV battery. I have several times experienced units with low batteries which started the engine OK but would not hold the clutch in. The battery may be getting old and not holding the charge. Try charging with a mains operated charger. Make sure to check water level in battery cells. Running them dry can ruin the battery.

Battery doesn"t charge


I don't see how this is related to the float?
With the engine running, measure output voltage from the alternator/charger at the battery. It should be about 13.5 vDC. It should increase a little bit with higher revs. If voltage doesn't change with engine running vs. engine off then you probably have a bad alternator which probablly has to be replaced or repaired by a service shop.

My mower discharge when the blades are ingauge


The wires connected to your PTO are the key to your problem. The electric pto is designed to run off the engine charging system when it is engaged and will run your battery down if it isn't. The fact your battery will charge and hold a charge tells me it is probably ok. You will need a wiring diagram to figure this out. You might check outdoordistributors.com. They have pdf files that you can view online for most lawn tractors. Good luck Tim

Battery won't hold a charge. I have to jump it with my car.


There are lots of things to check here. 1st is the battery getting a charge after the engine is running. If it is getting a charge then I would recommend putting the battery on a charger to bring it up to a full charge. Then if it loses the charge again the battery will need to be replaced.
