Yanmar 1300 won't start

Postby SleepySheepy » Wed Aug 19, 2020 11:11 am

Hi All,

I'm new to the forum and the world of compact tractors and could do with a little help. My Yanmar 1300 won't start. When I turn the key it won't even crank. It was working fine earlier today. I unhitched my topper and then lined up to attach a harrow, all running fine. I switched off the engine and killed it with the strangler so I could jump off and attach the harrow. When I got back on and turned the key nothing happens, it's completely dead. The little red light comes on when the key is in position and the battery is new so I don't think that's the problem. Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Check your battery connections- especially where the ground attaches to the frame. All connections need to be shiny metal.

That worked a treat. I scrubbed the connectors shiny and it started right up. Thanks for your help :D :D
