    That's my solution. Works very well, but very expensive.

    Sorry my reference to the stronger starter was what Tim had said. Can you get one? I don't know. I would ask at your local shop and even try calling Robin. How do they do it on skid steers and all of the other hydraulicly driven equipment that doesn't have a disconnect? In my eyes they just have enough grunt in the starter and enought storage in the battery. But I do know that more CCAs helps to, sometimes a lot. When I change my battery i will deffinatly go up on the CCAs.

    I am envious of you all who have an engine compartment arrangement that allows a normal Gp 24.

    I have a stupid lawn tractor size battery in mine, and it is barely enough when it is cold. I could see a bit more capacity could go a long way in resolving cold start problems.

    I could be wrong but I was pretty sure I saw High CCAs on batteries of the same size.

    I have seen lawn service battery's at a CCA of 300 in several different places.

    A warm battery will help also.

    Here is the highest one I found with a quick 1 minute search. If I was looking for a new one I would do more looking and get the biggest one that fits. Briggs & Stratton® Lawn & Garden Tractor Battery, 420 Cranking Amps - 4700042 | Tractor Supply Company

    Lawn tractor batteries with 340CCA are on the parts shelf here. On the topic of cables. Many folk look at the red cable from battery + to the starter.
    Every bit as important is the often neglected - chassis return(ground) cable. A beefy cable from battery to a starter mounting bolt will often add significant cranking power.
    I was amazed at the starter voltage increase and cranking rpm increase on my JD 1640 with the - cable upgrade
    A chassis return through sheet metal and bolted assembles is a source of phantom voltage and therefore power loss.
