Walker mower Battery power loss issue

I have a 2004 MT 26 EFI. I have been having issues with the battery holding power. I brought to the dealer and they replaced a corroded cable and the battery. Now Im doing snow removal with it and having the issue again. Any ideas?

Sounds like a faulty key switch.

Could be a bad ground, could be a short in a wire. Does it go dead just setting over night? Do you have an electric chute adjustment on your snow blower? I run a Buffalo Turbine blower for fall cleanups and have found that the electric motor that turns the blower nozzle draws more juice than my alternator can produce so every couple of days I need to hook up the charger for a while or the battery has trouble turning over the engine to start.

I am using the raise/lower toggle for the blower, I suppose that is drawing a lot of juice. Thanks for the feeback. Much appreciated.
