My Cub Cadet LTX1045 wont start

Thought it was just a dead battery. Replaced and installed a new one. The engine now cranks (where i had no power before) but it still wont turn over. I went ahead and removed old fuel from the tank. Cleaned out the tank and put in new fuel. Still cranks but still not turning over. The tractor is only about a year and a half old. Ive reached my scope of knowledge in trouble shooting it and hope it is still an easy fix. Any theories are appreciated. P.s. I am a person. The dog Lola in the pic is clearly an attention whore....

well, if it cranks, then it turns over... but anyhow. I bet you have flooded spark plug. Take it out, take butane torch to it, and burn it white, holding in plyers.
What I have learned about my tractor mower is never to crank it for too long. Just give it short bursts, with about 10-15 second pause in between. ANd mine is what - June 2005? Been parked outside, inside, not really well cleaned. Also, once in a while, run injector cleaner though fuel.
