Take it back to where you bought it and tell them to repair the charging system......

Well,

If you've had this issue since new obviously the charging system wasn't "fine" or you wouldn't have this issue.

I suggest you find someone willing to repair the system instead of shoving it out the door.....

OBVIOUSLY...I dont see how this thread got this far without some "Motor #'s"

It would take more than a "Zen Buddah" to figure this one out.

Ken....I,m not that familiar with Swisher mowers.....However it is clear that the charging system is not keeping up with the battery. Find someone thats good with electrical troubleshooting. Start by checking the fuses,the battery,and the stator output. Look for any corroded or rusted connections.

If all else fails, buy an extra battery or 2 and keep swapping them.
