toro 265H tractor won"t start

Hi, my toro wheelhorse would not restart after cutting half the lawn. The battery is new and has 12.5v output. The solenoid, key switch, fuses and the two relays are good. I used the toro service manual with my multimeter. Also checked the seat and pto switches. Both are ok. There is no power from the key switch but there is voltage to it via the battery wire. I'm completely stumped! Hope someone can help! ozzyinbear

If you have power to the ignition switch and nothing coming out of it, I would say a bad ignition switch.

how about the the gear shift (if its not hydro)
there`s a switch in there so it won`t start if its in gear.

do you need to press the clutch pedal down like on some of the cub cadets to start?

if no to all of these(if they`re okay) then it is most likely the switch. like marbobj said
