How long will this run??
I have an older Craftsman Garden Tractor that is not charging. I don't want to spend any money on this is it is primarily going to be a parts tractor (but it runs good now). The PO removed the deck and all the deck hanging hardware so it will never mow again in this incarnation. He also stripped the wiring safeties etc. so now it just has a start button and a kill switch. No key, seat switch, brake switch, pto switch. The PTO is on the shaft but not hooked up electrically, and It has no headlights, and does NOT have a carb solenoid. My question is how long would this run with a completely charged battery. I may try to use this to pull a fertilizer spreader for a 2 or 3 hour period. Am I right in thinking this is doable since there is nothing going out of the battery?? The sheet metal has been changed on this so I don't know the 917 number. The engine is an 18.5 hp briggs twin and may not even be original the tractor. Thanks!
