When the battery on your Craftsman riding mower refuses to hold a charge, there may be a problem with the alternator, rather than the battery itself. The alternator provides power to the battery while the mower is running and recharges the battery as well.
In order to keep the battery charged and running, a lawn tractor must have a charging system that works much like an alternator does in an automobile.
