Lawn and Garden Battery by Autocraft.

These small engine lawn and garden batteries by Autocraft are a cost effective solution to your aging lawn tractor battery. These batteries are almost maintenance free. 300 cold cranking amps should make starting quicker and put less a strain on your starter. These batteries are fully charged and ready to be installed right from the store. A fresh battery will put less a strain on your entire electrical system. They are designed to prevent internal shorts from all the harsh vibrations and rough conditions presented by lawn and garden equipment.
You may want to purchase a small packet of battery terminal protector for use when you install your new battery.
I have also used these batteries in simple low amp hour appliances as a backup or replacement.

Generic Tractor Battery

The generic tractor battery was priced within range and because of the website discount was 15% percent cheaper then buying from competitors.

      Comments about AutoCraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery, Group Size U1, 340 CCA:

      First off I can only write a limited number of words in your "Add your own" box and it locks down on me. I bought two batteries online because the purchasing card I wanted to use was not with me at the time and when I called the store the counterperson said I need to have the card to make the sale at the counter. I did have all the card information and purchase at many places just with the number. I asked the counterperson " if a card won't swipe at the counter the clerk takes the card and manually enters the number and the sales go through. You can't do that? "" Nope "was the answer you must have the card. With that said I purchased the two batteries on line and then 45 minutes later with a copy of the transaction in hand I went to the store to pick up the batteries. The store had no information on the sale and said it was the computer network being slow and it takes a while. That may be true but I needed a battery right then so I purchased one with another card not my business card which makes it inconvenient from an accounting standpoint but I had people waiting for me. I went back the next day and the purchase had processed thru. I find it hard to believe I can purchase online just dumping the credit card numbers in the form but can't take the card numbers to the store when there are security cameras filming the activity and I can provide multiple forms of ID. If all that was told to me is true Advance has a very antiquated system. I won't do that again because the other parts store in town takes my credit card number.

                    I took the battery in and they stated that it needed a charge. They over charged the battery and then stated that it was nothing they could do. I had batteries that lasted way longer then these. Going back to Tractor Supply, batteries are have more cranking amps and cheaper.

                            Hi Bill! The battery is a maintenance free battery; it does have the caps on the top but it is not designed to be opened to "maintain" it. If the fluid level is low due to lost acid, or damage water should not be added because the electrolyte levels will be unbalanced.
