    I have a 36 Wright Stander that is slowly draining the battery to the point that the blades will not come on. I can pull start it, but the blades will not turn. Any ideas on what could be causing this problem? Thanks for any help.

    will the mower charge the battery or do you have to put it on the charger?

    it sounds like the charging system is not keeping the battery charge,bad alternater(or whatever it has ) maybe a blown fuse, lose wire,burnt wire, or it could be that the battery terminal is lose on the ground side and its not charging.


    just my 2 cents keep us posted
