Turn key to start and nothing happens. Jump across the solenoid and the starter
runs but doesn't engage the engine.. Where do I start looking? Machine has not given us any indication of a problem.

I would remove and fully charge the battery, wait at least a day and then take it to a shop for load testing.
Voltage is meaningless. A load test is the best way to determine health of a battery.

It could be other issues but about 90% of the time the fault lies with the battery yet the owner's are usually convinced the battery is not at fault.

I agree, battery problems are sometimes had to diagnose, but why does the starter run when you jump over the solenoid? and the lights are bright. We will try jumping it with the truck.
