Customer Question
and as I was going...
I have a Gravely 60HD Model 99104. I started to mow this morning, and as I was going around a big bush, it just shut off. I don't know if the branches of the bush knocked a wire off. Now when I go to start it, I just get a click. Where should I look to see if a wire is disconnected?
