    Default BX22 - battery life expectancy?

    My tractor is approaching 2 1/2 yrs old and the battery seems to be faltering. Wondering what others in this age group are experiencing in terms of battery life. Can someone recommend a good replacement?

    ps...looks like mine has also started the HST "slow to return to neutral" behavior

    I personally think it is based on use. If someones uses it everyday, maybe 3 to 4 years. If not, maybe 4 to 5.

    I would think after XX time , it would be time to replace.

    My BX22 is from 2002 and working fine. FYI, My Lexus battery working fine from day 0 till 6 years. I would expect 4 years out of the OEM before replacement. If it has issues starting, check load volts on batt.

    I also had the "slow to return to".. pedal and it is an easy fix. You just need to adj the pedal. Fixed and working great!

    Battery life isn't easily determined because of too many factors that effect the life expectancy of the battery. I buy my batteries at Walmart. I have a $39 Walmart battery in my Mercedes E320 and it has been in there for over 5 years now. They haven't changed the price of the batteries for longer than I can remember. The one year no charge replacement battery is $29.... 2 year $39... Don't know about the others, because $39 is my limit for a throw away battery that last 5 years....

    gsxr1100 ..... You might consider visiting Walmart when that Lexus needs a battery ...... you might just find the correct size for $39 ....... besides, anyone that keeps a Lexus for 6 years is very thrifty... LOL........ [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I got 3 yrs until it wouldn't start in the Winter. With synthetic lube, I bet it would have turned over. Anyway, I went to battery warehouse and found the biggest one that would fit. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Junkman:

    A Walmart battery? Time to raise the bar a little here.

    Walmart Battery in my car, I do not think so.... I put a Optima Red Top in the Lexus. My car deserves better then cheap Walmart battery.

    That is like putting autozone aftermarket parts on a Lexus..wrong.

    I look for Websites that offer better OEM parts at aftermarket prices. That is called be a smart shopper.

    When the battery died in my 40' motorhome, I replaced it with an OEM battery from Walmart. Same brand that came in it originally. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

    That must be good to know that your 40' motorhome is at the same quality level as Walmart. Maybe get a Rollback on it next time! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Gee let me see here:..for my car

    Walmart EverStart is 525 CCA
    Optima Red Top 800 CCA


    Too bad I do not short myself on a battery. I do not want to be left in Hartford CT when my Walmart special decides not to start. I will take the extra 33% CCA with a Optima.

    There are only a couple of automotive battery manufacturers in North America, everyone just sells their rebranded OEM units.

    Optimas are an exception though, they are a first class product.
