I have a telehandler and someone stuck something in the ignition

Customer Question

I have a telehandler and someone stuck something in the ignition to get it started, then it died on them and they couldn't get it started. Since then I have put a new switch and battery in and its as if there isn't enough power to the starter. It turns over slowly for a second then nothing. Have power to switch and starter, how do I know if the starter is good without taking it off

Check the battery voltage before crank, and while cranking. If voltage drops below 8 volts, battery or cable problem. If less, and engine does not spin, starter is bad.
