But if by some fluke bad luck, while he is jump starting their problem
the positive hits the frame (cat comes running through yard with dog on
it's ass. Cat flys over mower. Goofy clumsy dog follows causing hot to
ground.), this brand new machine is trashed even further. And you KNOW
that EVERYTHING that is wrong and ever was will be becuse the customer
shorted the electrical system.
Brand new machine. He shouldn't have to be messing with it and he should
not be messing with it.
Just try charging the battery and see, if all is well just get a
replacement battery since low charge sulfates them, why waste the time
on a return with another weak battery. 13.8v is what you should charge
If it's another weak battery -- assuming that the problem is a battery
-- then they'll have to pick it up again until they make it right.
Goddamnit, this is literally a brand new machine, delivered yesterday,
and for $4,300 I want it to function like a brand new machine. I
don't want to have to do troubleshooting on something brand new.
Fortunately, mowing season is over so there's no need to rush.
Not necessarily. With a good full charge before putting it to sleep,
maybe, maybe not.
If so, I'll charge it then
The point is that when you buy something brand new, you'd like it
delivered in tip-top shape and working. They may find that it's
soemthing more serious than the battery, liek a defective starter that
