    I'm thinking it might be an issue with the wiring. I had that issue with my 1050 a few years ago, and finally had an alternator shop build me a new cable from the battery to the starter, as well as my cable for grounding, and selected a new grounding location on the frame, as the original location was pretty rusty looking, and I was not sure it was making good contact.

    HD sells Deere OEM batteries? I know Lowe's carries the OEM batteries for lawn mowers but those are way to small for a 2720. The 2720 OEM battery is a 500CCA battery. The batteries Lowe's carries in store are only 175CCA. (The only OEM Deere parts I can find on HD's website are mower blades and belts.)

    But if you are turning over with a jump box but not with jumper cables from your truck, then it sounds like you may have bad battery connectors on teh cable ends. Did you clean those up and remove any oxidation when you replaced the battery? I always check the other ends of the cables for corrosion and tightness too.

    Bad ground? Had that issue more than once on various machines.
    Use electrical/star washers, and some sort of penetrox or dielectric grease, when rebuilding the connections.

    Check the ground with a volt meter. Ohm it out from the battery terminal to a bare bolt somewhere on the chassis. Should have zero resistance. If that’s good, check positive battery terminal to the starter the same way. Not sure if they use a fusible link or not. Report back what you find.
