When I turn the key my inherited AC130 has no power. Actually happened last Fall, it just shutoff while idling, no power since. No lights, no click, no turnover.  Checked the 20amp fuse, replaced though it looked good.  Pretty sure the batttery's good. Anyone have other ideas?  Former owner had disconnected a bunch of the safety stuff, like the seat thingamajob, but it worked fine right up til the moment it didn't.

The pto would not work on ours when we pulled it out of the building 2 weeks ago. Did some testing, no power to the pto. Pulled the battery, removed the cover the battery sits on, and that’s where the mouse nest was. Chewed the pto wires in half. Spliced back together and it works fine. Maybe you have a similar situation

Sounds like either a break in the wires somewhere or possibly a tuckered out ignition switch. I would put a new ignition switch in it anyway if it still has the original in it... HTH

Had several solenoids go bad and effect system along with bad ground from battery to frame - which caused solonoid problems . 
 Thinking the battery is good - unless tested and found good - think it's bad

I'd agree with Steve that the ignition switch would be a good starting point. I have 1 of these AC130s myself and have noticed that mine has an issue too when it sits for any length of time. At first, I had assumed it was the battery which was in it when I first bought the used tractor. Battery tested as good but I replaced it anyway which still didn't help right away. After a little fiddling, I discovered that cycling the ignition switch really fast a few times would finally get it to make contact to power the starter. It has been like this a couple of years now but still working. If I need to start it multiple times in the same day or even 2 days in a row, it works just fine after that 1st start. However, if it sets more than a few days to weeks before the next time I use it, I have to cycle the switch again that first time until it makes contact to start.

'switch cycling' could be getting rid of the 'lubrication' grease off the 'switching' contacts. seen that PITA with mirror switch on my F150. Tore apart the 'no user repairable parts' switch to find a lot of grease had 'migrated' down onto the contacts. Cleaned them off 15 years ago, fine ever since...
