Have you load tested your battery at this point to see what the battery looks like? According to your question you had installed a new battery, started and run the machine a couple of times and now it seems like the starter is dragging. I am thinking that you may have a charging problem on your machine that is allowing the battery to run down after a couple starts and then it doesn't have enough amperage to restart the engine.
