Dead lawn mower battery

I have a MTD lawn mower. The battery went dead. I bought a new one and I just cranked it and then shut it off. Two days later the battery was dead. What could run the battery down in two days?

A number of things could. Do you have a 12 volt test light? Charge the battery, remove the negative cable and put the test light between the cable and battery. If it lights up with the key off, there is a short. Unplug different things to see when the light goes off. This will help to isolate the short.
