Sounds like maybe the shutoff solenoid isn't getting voltage except when starter is engaged.

sounds like battery or starter. Is battery a good one?

 

Our church has a 721D and we had to replace battery. It would charge up fine, but then not enough to spin starter fast enough as you said.

We actually traded a Ferris IS5000 wtih Cat deisel 72' cut for this Grasshopper, we all like it so much better. Smaller deck so we can cut more places, easier to manuever, less apt to tip over and it cuts our steep hills much eaiser as it's more stable. I am glad we got it. We cut about 4-5 acres including pond and field. The Ferris ended up in pond several times cause it would slide, not once with the GH.

Check all your connections and make sure they are tight. If your engine is mounted on rubber be sure and have a ground jumper between the engine and the frame. It is also possible that your starter is dragging and that will slow it down. Check the armature bearings for free play and smoothness.

The 600 I took from a Jacobsen TrKking and put in snowblowing Jacobsen TurfCat has a switch for the glow plugs that you hold in the on position until the glowplug indicator glows bright red.  I then hold the switch on and crank the engine until the engine starts and if it real cold I hold it until the engine smooths out.  I have a few  glow plug indicators than came with the deal if anyone is interested.  If I try to rush things and attempt to start before the glow indicator glows red all I get is white smoke and frustrated,  Takes about 60 seconds hen the temperature get down to the - 30* level.
