Hi folks, my mini-skid (Thomas 25G) has a Kohler Command 25. I am having a problem whereby if I only run the machine for a short time and at low throttle, the battery appears to die and I cannot re-start without a boost. If I run it for longer at higher throttle, the unit will start no problem next time. Should I only be running it at full-throttle? This is what the mechanic at my dealer advised but I wanted to get some other opinions. When I check the battery with a volt-meter after it won't start, I get 12+ volts. I use it in the summer for drilling post holes (with my auger-drive attachment), and would like to be able to throttle down if I step off the machine to do some manual digging, then throttle up again after to re-start drilling. Thanks all, NEW YEARS GREETINGS also from Canada!! GL Any ideas or suggestions please?
