    Default I may have the record! 9 years on my battery

    Not a typo. Nine years on my tractor battery.
    Just changed the battery out this week on my Ford 2600.
    4DLT, yep, the BIG sucker.
    Date of manufacture: Jan 2004
    Date placed in service: May 2004

    Do you think that Harbor Freight would pay me to do a commercial for their battery tender?
    I think that was the secret. Whenever the tractor wasn't in regular use, I had one on it.

    My New Holland TN70 is a 2001 model that I bought new and it still has the original battery in it.

    I tested my cousins battery at five years and it tested ok. Two weeks later it died. From now on they go at five years. It not worth leaving a 73 year old woman stranded.

    I got 10 years out of my last pickup truck battery.
    And 11 years out of my original tractor battery.
    Neither battery ever saw a tender
