    I will be replacing ours come fall, will be four years old, if you make 5, you are lucky.

    I prefer Diehard Gold batteries if one will fit. I have also had good life and performance from John Deere StrongBox batteries.
    I used to do the Hokey Pokey but I turned myself around.

    I haven't measured the battery yet, but it is a small battery.

    MT-51 Interstate. Little extra cranking amps and it'll drop right in. Probably after this cold snap you'll be good until next year anyway though.

    Battery size sometimes limits the choice of brands. I like a snug fitting battery the same size as the original so it doesn't get loose and bounced around.

    I second this. I used to sell a lot of batteries in our body shop, and I put an MT-51 in my GC, and it fits perfectly.

    Look up the Interstate dealers in your area, and call them. Most of the time they are installing it, so the price they sell them for, includes enough profit to also cover the labor. Ask for a cash and carry price, so they can knock the labor off. You should be able to get one at or under $80.

    MT-51 is a common Honda battery, so a good stocking dealer will have one on the shelf.

    MT-51, it says 500CCA, that's pretty good for a small battery.

    Still on my original for my 2006 GC2310, I don't use it in the winter and don't even disconnect it. Pretty sure I am on borrowed time though, I do notice it doesn't spin the engine quite as fast as it once did. I have excellent luck with Costco Kirkland batteries, hopefully they have this size.....

    I've sold Interstates at my store for 16 years .... they sell there self . I've got customers that should get paid for their endorsements . I look through the exchange ( core ) batteries , the date codes of all the brands , and Interstates have a real good average for longivety .
