    A couple pictures of today.

    Putting sod down here, I forgot to get before pictures. But last week before I bush hogged and sprayed with round up there were weeds and thorns over 8ft tall.

    Scraped a good bit up with the bucket first

    I didn't break anything, I don't think. It's just that sometimes, it decides the battery is dead..

    Like in that picture I'd shut it off to take a picture and tell my guy something. I get back on 5 minutes later and it tries to turn over, and acts like the battery is dead. I've put a new battery in it.. I am just gonna have to bite the bullet and send it somewhere.

    before you do that, change out your battery cables. my mustang skid was doing the same thing. plus i did have to eventually change the alternator.:hammerhead:

    Check them out my Bobcat did the same thing. I changed the battery but it turned out to be the cables.

    Waiting on the battery to charge as we speak.. So no it does it whenever it feels like it, not just hot

    So y'all are saying to change are the cables first?
