If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated...
As the title says I own a John Deere L130 tractor (bought used), I have had many problems out of this tractor, the latest being the battery loses charge while mowing.
What I have tried:
Fully charged the battery and tested 12V with multimeter.
Started the mower and got ~14.14V (thinking this rules out the voltage regulator being bad)
Switch on the PTO and got ~14.37V (thinking this rules out any PTO switch or wiring problems)
I feel like as I'm mowing the mower gets slower as I go and doesn't seem to have the power it once had, but that could be me looking for a problem trying to explain my initial problem of the battery drain while mowing. Does anybody have any ideas of anything additional to try? This is the first mower I purchased myself and have already had to do a lot of upkeep on it and I'm not in position to go buy anything else.
