Well when I said this thing had more power than I was expecting I wasn't lying! I mowed a little grass err ummm well it was more like full height hay! We have some spots you just can't get the brush hog in… but the massey chopped it right down!

With enough weight and whatnot, you will have no problem moving snow with it either.

Glad you're enjoying the 10, they're great little machines.

It works perfect except for one thing… it doesn't seem to charge. It turned VERY weak when I got it even with a jumpstart but after a good cleaning of all the grounds it rolled over fine. Every time i go to start it t gets weaker and weaker until no go. I can't find any bad wires or what not so I'm thinking a starter/ generator rebuil is in order?

More likely to be the voltage regulator.

Thanks olcowhand! I was almost thinking that because it still cranks over good and strong.

If you take a jumper wire and ground the "F" terminal on the starter/generator for a moment while observing a voltmeter hooked to the battery terminals, you should see the voltage rise to over 13vdc or even over 14.5.  Grounding that terminal makes the generator go "full field" or to full charge so you only want to do it for a moment.  If it does put out power, then the problem is the voltage regulator.  If not then the starter/gen has issue.  If your problem is in the VR, take the cover off and clean all the points style contacts in there and try it again.  Thats all it took to get my old Cub Cadet charging again, better than dropping $30+ on a new VR.  Good Luck.   Mike

Thanks for the advice mtoney, I didn't have a voltmeter on hand but I went ahead and took the VR off and cleaned all the points and contacts. It's kind of hard to tell because the amp gauge moves around a little bit but I believe it's showing + amps now. I'll make sure to let you know tommorow when I get a chance to run it around. Guess its time to install headlights!!

We have that problem every spring with Ryan's. it (so far has been the following)
First time, filed internal regulator contacts, cleaned ground surface (chassis bolts) locations.

Rest have all been intermittent ground at the regulator.

Nice. I have a soft spot for those red machines. One day I will have one.
