Sure sounds like a loose or dirty battery connection. Also could be loose or dirty frame or motor ground. I advise to clean and tighten all of them.

Check to see If it is full of oil and have someone get underneath it and see if they can turn the engine on the crankshaft pulley bolt with a socket and 1/2" ratchet.
