You may know this but it doesn't hurt to check. Did you LOAD TEST the battery? It is entirely possible for it to have 12.6 volts and still not hold up under load.

Load test the battery as Ken posted. What can happen in extreme cold circumstances is that the plates in the battery can warp and cause a dead short. This can happen to a new or older battery. The result is the starter does absolutely nothing; not even with jumper cables hooked up. The dead short disipates what ever charge is applied instantly. If you try to over charge the battery, it can explode under these circumstances so be CAREFUL. If you have a spare battery or jumper cables handy; try disconnecting the tractor battery completely and attempt another start using the spare battery or jumper cables ONLY. If it starts or cranks over, you most likely have a shorted battery. Good Luck!

Suggest several possibilities.
1. Will your lights turn on? If no, go to point #2. If yes, go to point #3. If the lights go on but seem very dim go to point #2.

2. Clean your battery terminals and check tightness of ground cable at the point on the tractor body. A loose ground or bad connection gives no juice. If you tested the battery directly on the battery posts, it wouldn't show a bad connection. Have you tried jumping it. You may have a weak battery with a dead cell as Ken had suggested.

3. If you have a PTO drive, the lever may have been bumped and the shut-off safety switch connected to it may not let you start the tractor. You can't start the tractor with PTO engaged. Similarly, you can't start your tractor in gear without the clutch being dumped or in neutral.

4. Next steps would be progressive, testing for electricity from keyswitch to starter. You should have a fuse next to the key. Check it out, usually one for ignition and the other the lights. Sometimes a starter can stop in a dead position. Give it a gentle "love tap" with rubber mallot. I don't know if you have a dead nothing or can hear the starter attempt to engage or not.

5. If it has a gear type transmission which I think it has try towing it. Tow it in the forward direction in 2nd gear and release the clutch. Don't tow a hydro!

I assume your battery is good & that all connections are good. Might not be a bad idea to shine up battery cable connections . They have a tendency to glaze over. There should be a single small wire coming off the top of the starter. This wire comes from the switch. Put tractor in nuetral. Run a wire from the solenoid battery terminal & touch it to the small wire terminal.. If starter works , your problem is either bad key switch , bad safety switch or break in the wiring . If the starter doesn't do anything you have a bad solenoid. This & answers to other common tractor questions can be found at the following link.

Thanks to all, turns out you were right the battery although regestering good on the tester would not hold a charge. Put in a new battery and now the sucker turns over and runs on the first try. Thanks again Brutus Tehachapi.
