If you're sure the battery is ok (sometimes they can short out and draw down the charge) you might want to test the alternator to see if it has bad diodes.

What does it mean when car starter makes buzzing noise?

It's typically either a discharged battery or a poor battery connection. Batteries are only an electrical storage device. If the alternator isn't keeping the battery adequately charged you could have the problem you describe. But rather than running right out and replacing the battery, first charge it and see if it will hold a charge overnight. Sometimes, if something is left on inside the car it will run the battery down sufficiently to cause what you describe. Other times it's the alternator, dirty battery terminal or even a worn out battery, but you can't know until you test these components.

What is wrong with kohler tractor when started in the morning ran most of the day and tried to restart in the evening and cannot jump start it with charger but can start with car?

Typically a charger is not meant ot "jump start" and engine. It provides a slow, regulated charge to the battery. A car battery or fully charged battery will typically provide enough pwoer to jump start your tractor. I recommend charging your battery for a number of hours (or overnight) till completely recharged. If the tractor will no start without a jump, your battery may be in need of replacement.
