    So far we have:

    AC Delco

    Diehard Gold

    JD Strongbox

    Interstate MT-51

    Costco Kirkland

    The one we know that fit's for sure is the Interstate MT-51.

    I have never owned an Interstate battery. Mostly because they are not readily available in our area. All the reviews I have read on Interstate batteries have been very good. And it fits.
    I used to do the Hokey Pokey but I turned myself around.

    GC2310,

    Default Re: Battery suggestions for GC2400

    Any group 51 battery should fit; they are common Honda replacements.

    This application should not have anything but a better quality battery.

    1. Vibration is very hard on batteries, and this application has plenty.
    2. Diesel engines have high compression, so you can use as much power as you can get. Especially when it's really cold, and later on, when your battery gets near the end of its life.

    I am still on the battery that came with my 2310 I bought new early 07. I use it year round and have over 700 hrs on it. It came with a Delkor battery. It is still going strong. I wished the battery I had in the plane would last half as long.

    I got 6 good years, and year of weak, but useable, service out of my original battery.

    Airplane batteries, ..don't even get me started. Our Skyhawk has a 24 volt system. So, every time It needs a battery, it's like having to buy two. Right now, they are almost $400.

    I think I've always been lucky with batteries... the one in my '07 GC2310 is still going strong and my '05 TDI still has it's original battery; use the tractor year round, now has about 350 hrs... and I think I MUST be on borrowed time, but the Gill G-35 in my PA-22-150 is dated (with magic marker) as July 2007, but still holds a charge well -- or seems to, at least. Must be some kind of record, I think! (Right now it's in my nice, warm basement at home...)

    I'll keep in mind that Interstate MT-51 for the little red beast... and, wunnatheezedayz, I'd love to replace that Gill with a sealed glass mat battery... but then they say I'd better upgrade to a solid state regulator if I do. (At least I only have one to replace, Ray!) WBB

    Well my luck ran out. Battery still turned this spring, but slow. Bought a Napa Legend and it fit perfect. Only difference was the +/- posts were on opposite sides, but just turned the battery 180 and the cables fit fine. 560 CA/450CCA so it turns over nice and fast. Cost $110.00

    Which ever you decide to go with I would also buy a battery tender to go with it.
