Battery Causes Mower to Stop
I have a Honda Harmony riding mower- 7 years old- recently serviced. Battery is 3 to 4 years old. After cutting grass for 30 minutes mower shut down. Would not turn over when I tried to start. I cleaned the battery terminals and reinstalled battery. It started right up and I continued to cut grass. After another 10 minutes it shut off again. It would not turn over. I thought I must have a short or some other electrical problem. I took the battery in to test and found it had a bad cell. Installed new battery and it worked perfectly. Ran it it for another hour or so with no problems.
My question is this: Is it possible for a battery to cause this mower to shut down while it is cutting grass. I thought the battery was just for starting.
