This is like my own personal forum since I have posted so much in just a couple of days
just bought a new Gravely ZT 50 (915150). Pulled it off the trailer, drove it into my heated garage and parked it.
I started it up once after that, cranked right up.
Got a mulching kit (which is just a baffle so not sure why they say kit). I pulled the deck off to install it. Not really sure I pulled it off correctly, but the only thing I "disconnected" was the pto belt. basically took off 4 bolts, cotter keys and dropped the deck.
I put the deck back on today.
It was in the high 40's, so thought I would go practice driving as I had an hour or 2 of light left.
I sat on the mower. I engaged the parking brake, which means I pull the lever back towards me. When engaged it locks the steering controls so there is no doubt it is engaged.
Sitting on it, I then hit the key - nothing, no click or anything.
Figured I missed something, tried it a few more times, nada. Pulled out the manual, read it again, tried it again - nada.
I did insure the PTO was off.
Maybe I left the key on. Checked the battery with a meter - read 12.xx volts.
Well, let's charge it anyway to be sure.
Put it on the charger, few minutes later the charger clicked off as the battery was at full charge.
If I engage the PTO with the key on, it makes a real loud click, so that is getting power.
Looked around for a fuse but did not see anything anywhere. I took a break to eat and am headed back out to look by the key area to look for a fuse there.
Seems simple, and I would guess it is me.....but I sit on the mower, I engage the parking brake, which means the controls are locked in neutrral, I hit the key and get nothing....not even a click.
Am I missing something ?
I am obviously going to the dealer tomorrow, but thought maybe I am over looking something.
