A fully charged battery will not run down that much in 35 mins...... even if you leave the ignition and lights on. Either your battery wasn't charged, or you have a bad regulator or cutout that let the battery sap out through the generator.

Andy, Don't know if you have a 6 or 12 volt conversion system, you didn't mention. But whichever system your tractor is equipped with, if you feel the battery was drained in that short of time, I would do an inspection of the wiring system and components, cause' it sounds like you have a serious draw somewhere. Make sure your battery is good by doing a draw test on it. Make sure it's fully charged first, let it sit a half hour or so, then pull a draw on it. Could be just the battery failing and not a problem on board the tractor. As Duey mentioned, those Reverse Current Relays occasionally stick, and the generator will start to drain the battery on the 6 volt systems, usually not that fast, but over night they'll do a battery in. A starter motor starting to fail could suck a battery dry also...

If this is a 6 volt generator system....it is probably the points in the cutout relay...stuck together when the engine is shut off and the battery drains back through the generator. Duey

First of all, how do you come to the conclusion that it was fully charged?? Is your ammeter or voltmeter showing charge? Did you maybe leave the switch on with a heavy load drawing current? Like
steve says-you need more particulars.

andy, you need ot give a little more info. first, its hard to believe a battery went dead in 30 minutes, unless something got very hot (starter, wires, coil???) more important, it is a WD or a B, etc. 6 volt or 12? coil or magnito? do you have a generator, or a newer alternator? do you have an ampmeter and what does it say? is this the first time this happened? did you charge the battery and problem disapeared or happens again? you can get quite a few answers, if you supply some info for analysis.
