    2006 Genie Z45/25 Dual Fuel Ford LRG 425, everything works great except starting. It seems real hesitant to start almost like dead battery, checked battery, even put a fresh one on, still has a bad hesitation, like its hard for motor to turn over, eventually it the rpms will get faster and it will start, the lag is just very annoying, any help?

    Check your cable connections, grounds and then the relay/starter.

    If you have a meter, check how much voltage drop you see while cranking.
