I have a Ransomes Bobcat ztr, with a Kohler 23 hp engine. The mower keeps dying while in operation. Once it dies wont start again unless battery is jumped. Jump the battery and it starts right up and runs fine for 10 minutes or so then dies again.

Any ideas?

did you try a new battery? If not, get a new battery. It probably won't hold a charge.

You need a stator, generator, or alternator w/e your machine uses. When the juice runs out from the jump start there is no energy for the coil to send spark.
