    Mows great, I like the machine, a 25/60.......but should I buy this particular one?

    I ask because it died twice after two hours of mowing. And it was a 0 hour machine, very new. Just dead in its tracks. Jumped it, it ran for a few minutes, died. Jumped it again and scooted it right onto the trailer.

    Tested the battery with a load tester, 12V static, drops to 3V under load.

    Just a bad battery? Think the mowers charging system might be suspect? On a o hour new mower?

    Also, on rough terrain, the engine cut in/out a few times. Related to the battery?

    Dunno if I should walk away from this one or not......

    Talk to the dealer, it really sounds like part of the wiring harness may be unplugged....

    If I demoed something new and there was the slightest problem I noticed, that would not be the one I pay for and own personally.

    I'm willing to bet that the problem is in the relays. Maybe it sat outside in the rain a lot?
