    Default Re: Marine Battery?

    The local Advanced Auto has the same battery used by the OP in stock for $70. The posts are in the right spot and the threaded marine connections could make it easy to add some fused accessory wiring to feed a couple lighting relays. It makes an attractive option. I'm still going to shop around some to see what I can get a sealed battery for.

    I went shopping for a road vehicle battery recently, so my criteria was a bit different.

    For a sealed battery, I probably would have picked up one of these Northstars. Around here, they price out similar to Optima. I'm told this is a division of Exide.

    I would not go with a marine battery. They are deisgned to be discharged and recharged they are not a starting battery. I just put a Optima in my car, if it works out good that is what the tractors will get when they need them. They are definatley going to get a AGM battery because of vibration. My bobcat always had acid running down out of it. The optima and oddesy batteries have a lot of cca which will be nice to get a tractor started on a cold morning.

For vehicles which are started and used frequently I get a full six years out of the Walmart Everstart Maxx for a lot less cost. The tractors all get the agm batteries DieHard because of vibration. I am getting ready to replace the deere battery in my 4520 next week and hope I can find a DieHard or Odyssey that fits.
    Some of the everstart batteries are JCI, Johnson Control Inc. They make Interstate and Optima. Here is a group size chart to help you find a battery that may will fit.
