    Question Cub battery woes

    2010 Cub Cadet ltx 1040, new battery (Put in back in April), The battery doesn't stay charged, You can jump it and start it and let the charging system/alternator charge it up, but the next day, It goes from 12.5 volts to 8 to 10 volts. What do y'all think?
    A bad cell? I was going to buy that NOCO GB40 starter/jumper but then i saw the price ;)
    Thanks in advance!

    Try this: Get the battery charged back up to 12.7 volts, then disconnect the ground terminal. Let it set for the same amount of time, then check the voltage again. If it's down again, the battery is bad.

    Auto parts store will tell you. Lawnmower batteries only have 90-day warranties. That lets you know how badly they are built.
