Troy-Bilt Riding Mower 13WX79KT011 xp 22 hp. I mowed

Customer Question

Troy-Bilt Riding Mower 13WX79KT011 xp 22 hp. I mowed for about an hour this morning in semi wet grass. After emptying the bag, got ready to go and turned the key. A buzz sound was made in the starter area, no clicking, I am guessing the starter went out but I would say I tinker, not an expert at all. What do you think?

AS you said, it sounds like you need a new battery. Make sure that you geet a GOOD battery with at least 300 cranking amps in i and stay away from the discount store batteries as a good portion of them are bad right off the bat.Good luck and have a good weekend.
