A voltmeter is an essential tool any car or tractor guy should have. It helps you solve a myriad of problems. I just chased an ignition problem on my tractor and without it, would have never found the problem. You should have one at the very least for measuring battery voltage.
You can test your starter (to eliminate that as the problem) by connecting a known battery like from your car or truck with jumper cables to the starter (One to the starter post, and one to chassis ground). If it turns, that eliminates the starter. You can eliminate your new battery as the problem by connecting your car battery to the posts/battery cables using your jumper cables. connect the car battery in parallel. You know the car battery is good so if nothing happens again, you know it's not the battery. It's somewhere in between, possibly the solenoid.
