    I'll give it a try as soon as I get to my tractor's den.
    It's really a mess out there right now after the several feet of snow we got last Friday.
    To make matters worse, it started raining on Monday and started a quick melt.

    We are having the same messy weather here. Snow, melt rain, freezing rain, warm, melt, cold, freeze up, repeat! LOL
    God Bless our brave men, bring them home, safe again.

    A visual check won't help, you have to remove the cables and clean both terminal and post. These tractors hate even a slightly dirty battery connection.

    Correct.
    He also needs to remove the ground cable were it bolts to the frame and clean the connections.

    Just wanted to say that I am not ignoring all your fine advice, I just have not had the chance to do all the suggested checks. Will try this weekend.
    While I check the connections, what product (available in Canada) does anyone recomment to use to keep the connections clean and corrosion free?
    I keep my Kioti in an unheated covered separate storage area along with all the implements.

    Been over 4 months since I followed the advice given and after tightening the ground connection, have never had the problem again. Many thanks to all!
